The Spanish Claimant

Andrew Ostrer

A Spanish family seeks redemption after being responsible for the loss of Gibraltar in 1704.

Pablo Diego de Salinas finds a letter in a bundle of documents purporting to be from General Franco to his grandfather, containing startling information about a rumoured agreement made between the general and Churchill during the Second World War.

Nick Simpson's Spanish wife has been abducted and he is unwillingly embroiled in a plan to steal a highly classified document to trade for her life.

D I Ian Norton is assigned to the case, which goes well beyond anything he has dealt with in the past. He is tested to his uttermost limits.

What are the mysterious links between these events?
