Publisher's Summary

Don Jaime de Astarola is Spain's greatest fencing master...a man of honor, an anachronism...and the perfector of the deadly unstoppable thrust technique. He lives an ordered and celibate life dedicated to one passion: the art of fencing...until the beautiful and mysterious Adela de Otero destabilizes his tranquil existence, and he finds himself involved in a plot of seduction, politics, secret documents, and murder.

©1988 , 1998 Arturo Perez-Reverte; Margaret Jull Costa - English translation (P)1999, 2016 NewStar Media, Phoenix Books

What the Critics Say

"Michael York conveys de Asterola's newfound passions - for love, vengeance and survival - with his own master's touch. He also draws a few laughs with the dry wit that leavens the novel." (AudioFile)

    "A Classic"

    This is a beautifully written, deeply engrossing mystery with an eloquent, unforgettable portrayal of an aging hero.
    Michael York's reading is nothing short of brilliant.
