Synopsis: Arturo Pérez-Reverte cambia de registro, aunque sin salir de su mundo personal, y escribe una gran historia de amor. El tango de la Guardia Vieja, sigue la relación amorosa entre un hombre y una mujer en tres únicos pero intensos encuentros a lo largo de 40 años del siglo XX. Los protagonistas son Max, un vividor, bailarín de salón y ladrón de guante blanco, y Mecha, una hermosa e inteligente mujer casada de la alta sociedad. El autor describe cómo evoluciona el amor con el tiempo: de los embates de la pasión de juventud a la melancolía del recuerdo en la entrada de la vejez. La novela es también un amplio y documentadísimo fresco de la historia de una Europa desvanecida, la de los años veinte, treinta y sesenta. La trama incluye una peligrosa peripecia en los barrios bajos de Buenos Aires, un complot de espionaje en la Niza de entreguerras, con referencias a la Guerra Civil española, y una intriga en torno a un torneo internacional de ajedrez en Sorrento sobre las casillas de la guerra fría. Junto al amor y los sentimientos, unas páginas de sorprendente erotismo con una fuerte carga sexual. Y también grandes dosis perezrevertianas de aventura. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In his most recent novel, Arturo Pérez-Reverte journeys into uncharted territories to write a sweeping story of obscure and passionate love. El tango de la Guardia Vieja follows the love story of Max, a charming hustler, accomplished ballroom dancer and elegant thief, and Mecha, a beautiful and intelligent high-society matron. In the three powerful encounters that occur during four decades in the 20th century, the author depicts a affair that evolves from the passionate bursts of youth to the melancholy of reminiscence, and the beginning of old age. The novel is also a broad and carefully documented fresco of a fading continent the Europe of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1960’s. The plot includes a dangerous incident in the slums of Buenos Aires; an intelligence conspiracy in inter-war period Nice with allusions to the Spanish Civil War; and a disquieting game of chess in Sorrento, played over the checkered squares of the Cold War. Love, passion, and lust come together with Pérez-Reverte’s characteristic dose of adventure.
