Jack fired again. Another three shots. The rifle flew in the air and the man was thrown backwards, smacked onto the parapet, then over and down into the arroyo, while the Capitan jammed on the brakes, leaned sideways to stop them spilling over as they swerved to a halt. From behind the opposite parapet, the submachine gunner stood, his line of fire now clear, with the lorry rolling past. He lifted the weapon as Jack shakily brought up the automatic, no idea how many shots he had left. But, by then, Fidel was pushing him down into the sidecar and, in his hand, the Capitan held the revolver – the one Jack had taken from Crazy Luis.

October 1938, and foreign correspondent Jack Telford is on the run in northern Spain, territory now controlled by Franco’s fascists. And he’s killed somebody close to the Generalísimo’s heart. Telford’s a hunted man, and hunted by three different and deadly enemies. In a climactic chase from Madrid to the Republic’s last outpost, in Alicante, during the closing days of the Spanish Civil War, Jack will learn hard lessons about the conflict between morality and survival.
