At dawn tomorrow, 15 enemies of the state will be rounded up and executed. Shot in the head if they are lucky, garrotted if they aren't. Their bodies won't be found for 57 years, tangled bones in a disused mine. For Ana Maria Galindez, a forensic investigator with the guardia civil, it will be her first encounter with the work of Comandante Guzman. But not her last. Guzman was the head of the notorious Brigada Especial, Franco's secret police and the fear behind the dictator's power. So why, like his victims, did Guzman also vanish from history amid the winter blizzards of 1953? To find out, Ana Maria will have to risk her life. She'll discover, as Guzman did, that you can't escape the past."@en ;
