An intense literary thriller that tears through the interlocked histories of fascism and communism in Europe without pausing for breath.
Gonzalo Gil is a lawyer stuck in a disaffected life, with a failed career, dodging the never-ending manipulation of his powerful father-in-law. When, after no news for years of his estranged sister, Laura, he learns that she has committed suicide under dramatic circumstances, his fragile life as both a father and a husband is pushed to the limit.
Resolutely investigating the steps that led his sister to suicide, Gonzalo discovers that Laura is suspected of having murdered a Russian gangster who had kidnapped and killed her young son. What seems to be revenge is just the beginning of a tortuous path that will take Gonzalo through the untold annals of his family's past. He will examine the fascinating story of his father, Elias Gil, the great hero of the resistance against fascism. As a young engineer his father traveled to the USSR committed to the ideals of the revolution, but was betrayed, arrested, and confined on the infamous Nazino Island, and became a key figure, admired and feared, during Spain's darkest years. Suspenseful, dark, and thrilling, A Million Drops is a visceral story of enduring love and revenge postponed that introduces a master of international crime fiction to American readers.
