REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

It is a good story, not a nice one. It is well worth reading, but it is not for our edification nor to enhance our ethical values. It should serve to make us more aware of the (under)world around us, how it works, the persons it generates, the cruelty and craftiness with which it operates. It is sobering and outrageous. ~ Frank Regan, Renew

I have been an admirer of Alberto Vazquez-Figueroa's books since I was a teenager. He has been always my literary idol, and the inspiration to become a journalist, a war correspondant and finally a successful novelist. ~ Arturo Perez Reverte, International bestselling author

Vazquez-Figueroa is one of the best Spanish writers of our time, and certainly the most commercially successful! ~ Jose Manuel Lara, President and founder of the Grupo Planeta, the largest publishing group of Spain and Latin America
