The Fifth Column

By James Garcia Woods

A member of the International Brigade is murdered while training in the heart of Republican Spain.

As mutual suspicions spread among the various groups that make up the brigade, it seems the unit – which is desperately needed for the defence of Madrid – is going to disintegrate. And so Paco Ruiz is once more called upon to return to his pre-war role as homicide detective.

Why do some of the peasants seem glad the brigadista who came to defend them is dead? Why does the Lincoln’s commander insist the murderer must have come from outside the village? And before the case is over, will Paco lose the woman he loves to her old college professor?

As the clock ticks, Paco struggles with one of the most complex cases of his career, never realising that he too, has been marked for death.
