What a pleasure it is to find Ms. Pawel—a major new voice.”—Marietta Dunn, The Philadelphia Inquirer“[Pawel] frames the difficult and moral questions of the era in the lives of her fascinating characters, bringing history alive.”—Rocky Mountain News“What distinguishes her among other writers of the genre is her intelligent re-creation of the time period and her ability to get into the minds of the fascist characters.”—Alan Cheuse, The Dallas Morning News“Wonderful. . . . Pawel resists easy solutions to historically difficult problems.”—Chicago TribuneIn the southern city of Granada, Spain, bastion of the conservative Catholic aristocracy, fear of the Red Menace is still strong in 1945. One rich, arrogant, elderly lady summons the police to her home almost once a week; she is sure Communists are plotting against her. She changes her will almost as often. When she is found dead, the long-suffering local police can’t believe that she really may have been murdered. But as her latest will has vanished, the death must be investigated.Influence is exerted to have Lieutenant Carlos Tejada Alonso y León transferred temporarily from Potes, in the northern mountains where he has been stationed, to take charge because the rich old lady is his grand aunt Rosalia, and one of the chief suspects is his father. The family expects Tejada to exonerate its members, but Tejada is a man who puts duty first.
