Amid the chaos, a man like no other makes his way south through France and into Spain. No one will stand in his way and live. Only idealistic young Wilson Tripp, American vice consul in the city of Seville, stands to discover the man's true identity and the stunning threat he poses, that is, if Wilson Tripp can survive.
Said Barnaby Conrad, "It is hard to explain how colorful, exciting, and occasionally dangerous 'neutral' Spain was in that era; the closest thing I can compare it to would be to the film Casablanca, with its Nazi villains, American heroes, beautiful women, and spies. And intrigue, always intrigue. In this book, I've done my best to recreate 24 hours in 1945 in Seville at the very end of the war. Most of the names and incidents are fictitious, but the setting is my Andalucia, as authentic as I can reproduce it after so many decades."
