"If Orwell had met Almodovar, he would have written something like this."--Le Point "Marc Fernandez proves himself to be a fearless storyteller, smartly blending historical fact with a crime fiction plot."--Le Monde, M (the magazine) "Succeeds diabolically."--Paris Match "Breathless and chilling."--VSD "The plot, at the intersection of contemporary politics and history, unfolds with a growing sense of pleasure and exoticism. The characters' color and verve is reminiscent of Almodovar."--Le Progres "Efficacious. Well put-together with just enough humor and bruised feelings: a good read."--Alsace "Like a cross between a crime novel and reportage, the story of this dark and little known period during the Franco years cries out with truth."--Point de Vue
