Abstract:

Bestselling author Howard Fast's 1966 novelization of the Spanish Inquisition, Torquemada, is a terrifying drama about one of history's most notorious individuals. Prior Thomas de Torquemada and Don Alvaro de Rafel, a Spanish knight, have been friends for many years. But when Torquemada is named Spain's Grand Inquisitor by King Ferdinand and begins to hear whispers that Alvaro may have a secret Jewish past, he transforms from Alvaro's old friend into a menacing new enemy. Inspired by Fast's experiences being investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his subsequent jailing and blacklisting, Torquemada is a thrilling historical tale from a master of the genre.
