Death of a Nationalist

Death of a Nationalist - Rebecca Pawel Nicely done first mystery, set in the days after the Spanish Civil War ended when tensions between Franco supporters and the vanquished Republicans were high enough for people to shoot first and ask questions later. Carlos Tejada, a member of the feared Guardia Civil must solve the murder of a friend. He gets a lot wrong but the pleasure of the novel turns on the moments when he gets it right.
