Sent to Spain by British Intelligence to arrest a rogue spy, agent Peter Cotton expects an easy first assignment. But just as he arrives in Cadiz, his quarry turns up dead. It’s 1944, and as war in Europe draws to a close, formerly neutral Franco is edging closer to the Allies – but things are not what they seem.It appears all of Cadiz has been expecting Cotton. In a hotbed of international conspiracy, shifting political alliances and murder, what Cotton unearths amid the stifling heat and dust could just tilt the emerging balance of post-war power.
