Set in 1940, during the evocative and uncertain period when the Spanish Civil War is over but WWII terrors persist, WINTER IN MADRID is riveting historical fiction. Harry Brett, who is recovering from recent traumatic experiences at Dunkirk, acts as a reluctant spy for the British Secret Service. He is sent to Madrid to gain the confidence of an old schoolmate who is now a businessman with politically shadowy associations. Sansom’s vivid thriller is reminiscent of Zafon's THE SHADOW OF THE WIND. Gordon Griffin's clearly articulated characterizations are effortlessly drawn, and his enigmatic emphasis makes for compelling pacing. Further, his Spanish accents and pronunciations are entirely believable. Overall, Griffin's delivery makes for an exceptionally dramatic listening experience.
