The first in a magnificent series of historical novels from the acclaimed, bestselling author of The Club Dumasand The Queen of the South The novels of Arturo Prez-Reverte have captivated readers around the world and earned him a reputation as the master of the intellectual thriller (Chicago Tribune). His books have been published in fifty countries. Now, beginning with Captain Alatriste, comes Prez- Revertes most stunning creation to date: a riveting series featuring the adventures of an iconic hero. Captain Alatristeis the story of a fictional seventeenth-century Spanish soldier who lives as a swordsman-for-hire in Madrid. Needing gold to pay off his debts, Alatriste and another hired blade are paid to ambush two travelers, stage a robbery, and give the travelers a fright. No blood, they are told. Then a mysterious stranger enters to clarify the job: he increases the pay, and tells Alatriste that, instead, he must murder the two travelers. When the attack unfolds, Alatriste realizes that these arent ordinary travelers, and what happens next is only the first in a riveting series of twists and turns, with implications that will reverberate throughout the courts of Europe. A twenty-first century literary phenomenon . . . The clash and dash are thrilling; the swordplay is a bonus.
