Afraid that the duque will cash in his wealth to finance the Falange, the Spanish authorities resolve to keep a close eye on the Englishman, who is also being watched by his own embassy. As Whitelands - ever the fool for a pretty face - vies with Primo de Rivera for Paquita's affections, he learns of a final interested party: Madrid is crawling with Soviet spies, and Moscow will stop at nothing to secure the hidden prize."--Publisher's description

El asombroso viaje de Pomponio Flato by Eduardo Mendoza( Book )

En el siglo I de nuestra era, Pomponio Flato viaja por los confines del Imperio romano en busca de unas aguas de efectos portentosos. El azar y la precariedad de su fortuna lo llevan a Nazaret, donde va a ser ejecutado el carpintero del pueblo, convicto del brutal asesinato de un rico ciudadano. Muy a su pesar, Pomponio se ve inmerso en la solución del crimen, contratado por el más extraordinario de los clientes : el hijo del carpintero, un niño candoroso y singular, convencido de la inocencia de su padre, hombre en apariencia pacífico y taciturno, que oculta, sin embargo, un gran secreto. Cruce de novela histórica, novela policíaca, hagiografía y parodia de todas ellas, El asombroso viaje de Pomponio Flato es la obra más insólita e inesperada de Eduardo Mendoza, y también una de las más ferozmente divertidas. Como en el Quijote se ponían en solfa los libros de caballerías, aquí se ajustan las cuentas a muchas novelas de consumo, y se construye, al mismo tiempo, una nueva modalidad del género más característico de Eduardo Mendoza : la trama detectivesca original e irónica, que desemboca en una sátira literaria y en una desternillante creación de inagotable vitalidad novelesca
