The engine shuddered into life and a cloud of smoke rose across Jack’s window. It cleared slowly as Mikel put the bus in first gear and there, on the corner of a narrow street, half-hidden in the shadows, leaned a man with hands thrust deep into trouser pockets. He wore a striped suit, a shirt with no collar. The man’s chin and cheeks were heavily stubbled, the face familiar, fixing Jack with a stare as insolent as the one he had last seen in Irún.

September 1938. Spain's Civil War has been raging for two years, the outcome still in the balance. But rebel General Franco is so confident of winning that he has opened up battlefield tourism along the country's north coast.

Jack Telford, a left-wing reporter, finds himself with an eccentric group of tourists on one of the War Route's yellow Chrysler buses. Driven by his passion for peace, Telford attempts to uncover the hidden truths beneath the conflict.

But Jack must contend first with his own gullibility, the tragic death of a fellow passenger, capture by Republican guerrilleros, a final showdown at Spain's most holy shrine and the possibility that he has been badly betrayed. Betrayed and in serious danger.
