Britain now stands alone while General Franco considers whether to abandon neutrality and enter the war. Into this uncertain world comes Harry Brett: a traumatised veteran of Dunkirk turned reluctant spy for the British Secret Service. Sent to gain the confidence of old schoolfriend Sandy Forsyth, now a shady Madrid businessman, Harry finds himself involved in a dangerous game - and surrounded by memories.Meanwhile Sandy's girlfriend, ex-Red Cross nurse Barbara Clare, is engaged on a secret mission of her own - to find her former lover Bernie Piper, a passionate Communist in the International Brigades, who vanished on the bloody battlefields of the Jarama. In a vivid and haunting depiction of wartime Spain, Winter in Madrid is an intimate and compelling tale which offers a remarkable sense of history unfolding, and the profound impact of impossible choices.ReviewsDaily Telegraph'...the novel, Sansom's third, is thoroughly researched, convincingly evocative and solidly entertaining.'Guardian'a tense, literate page-turner, full of twists, authentic detail and real pathos, a superb achievement'---The AuthorCJ Sansom was educated at Birmingham University, where he took a BA and then a Ph.D. in history.
