Publisher's Summary

The action in The Sentinel alternates between the present and the dark winter of 1953, where Comandante Leo Guzmán is head of a secret police unit whose job is to hunt down enemies of the state. Guzmán’s brutal tactics are simple and effective: everyone is suspect.
In 2009, on a blazing summer's day in the hills near Madrid, Ana María Galindez, a Guardia Civil forensic scientist, examines what she thinks is just another Civil War grave. Fifteen bodies are hidden in an abandoned mine shaft, and forensics reveal that the killings took place sometime in the early 1950s. The identity of the suspected murderer? Comandante Leo Guzmán.
Intrigued by Guzmán’s disappearance, Galindez becomes obsessed with tracking down this shadowy killer. As she investigates, she disturbs things which have lain dormant for almost 60 years. Things so compromising that those concerned will stop at nothing to destroy them—and her.

Simply Unbelievable and fantastic. Easy 5 Star

I took a gamble on this one. Something caught my imagination. Oh that was a good move. What a book, brilliant and totally absorbing. The story is demanding, gruesome and relentlessly draws you in. The main character is truly Shakespearean, hard, bad and tragic. There a three linked stories and each is powerful and important. I kept wanting to get back to each one, frustrated when the book took you the next. The narrator is brilliant and adds so much to the book, his skill with voices is a delight. Read it and pay attention. It all matters.

Great book

Not normally my type of book but the reviews were good. This book is great. Although it was longer then normal it held my interest from the first page. It covers three time zones but you always knew where you were. I recommend it. The narrater Nigel Carrington was very good and I enjoyed listening to him.
