9781848540323: The Maze of Cadiz (Peter Cotton)

Sent to Spain in 1944 to arrest a rogue spy, British agent Peter Cotton expects an easy first assignment. But he arrives to find his quarry dead and all of Cadiz awaiting his arrival. In a hotbed of scandal and murder, Cotton must navigate a labyrinth of international conspiracies, shifting political allegiances, and a mysterious local expatriate community to discover the truth. What he unearths could just tilt the emerging balance of post-war power and the course of history for ever.

About the Author:

This is Aly Monroe's first novel, part of a projected series that begins during World War II and follows the process of decolonization and the aftermath of Empire. 

Review:

"A gripping thriller . . . precision and grace . . . rich authenticity. Let's hope Monroe finds an American readership and the book becomes more readily available here soon."  Orange County Register

"It's really quite wonderful."  Linda Fairstein, author, The Deadhouse

"An impressive novel with an extraordinary, dreamlike atmosphere. . . . The next can’t come too soon."  Financial Times

"A splendid debut . . . terrific and convincing historical atmosphere; I am delighted that she is writing more Peter Cotton novels."  Times

"Her writing is skilful and evocative . . . a stylish and impressive debut."  Economist

"Accomplished  debut . . . Monroe’s portrait of Cadiz in the aftermath of the civil war is atmospheric, and in a surprising twist the mild-mannered Cotton turns out to be as devious as his adversaries."  Sunday Times

"Cotton’s investigating is clever and fascinating."  Guardian

"Addictive."  Sunday Telegraph

Descripción Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. First novel in the critically acclaimed Peter Cotton series following the fortunes of British spy Peter Cotton. For all fans of John le Carre, Robert Harris, Eric Ambler and Graham Greene.Peter Cotton, a young Intelligence officer is sent to Spain in September 1944. The war in Europe is drawing to a close; formerly neutral Franco is edging closer to the Allies. Cotton has been sent to investigate the activities - and then, just as he arrives, reports of the death - of a British agent, May, who has spent much of the war in the remote outpost of Cadiz monitoring the Spanish smuggling of raw materials to aid the Axis war efforts, in strict violation of the terms of neutrality. Cotton is briefed in Madrid by Houghton, an agent working at the British Embassy. He also meets Houghton s partner, Marie, half-Jewish, who has helped many Jews escape through Gibraltar. They brief him on Franco, his paranoid fears of assassination, his capricious cruelty and his duplicity. Even as he gets on the train to begin the long, hot journey to Cadiz, it is clear that Cotton is being watched. And when he arrives in the rundown port, almost on the brink of starvation, it is clear that his visit has been expected. Reluctantly allied with the sinister Ramirez, the local police inspector, Cotton has to investigate May s death and what exactly led him to sever all contacts with his London controllers in the months leading up to his disappearance. But Cotton is not the only person with an interest in finding out what May had been doing. Cadiz is a hotbed of rumours and shifting political alliances in this, the final phase of the war and Cotton must navigate his way not only through local tensions but also through the uncertain loyalties of a bizarre expatriate community, including an unhelpful consul, a German woman married to a wealthy Spaniard and mysteriously marooned in the town, an apparently innocent Irish girl, and a strange British couple who chose to remain in Spain while the rest of Europe was engulfed in flames . . . What Cotton discovers amid the stifling heat and dust could just tilt the emerging balance of post-war power. Nº de ref. de la librería AA69781848540323
