Winter in Madrid is set just after the bloody Spanish Civil War, with World War II looming over Europe. Reluctantly, Harry Brett looks for an old schoolmate who's become a person of interest for British intelligence.
"A bestseller in the U.K., this moving opus leaves the reader mourning for the Spain that might have been-and the England that maybe never was."-Publishers Weekly
