ENGLISH DESCRIPTION When Miquel Mascarell takes on the search for a young anarchist, he discovers that the success of his investigation could entail his own death. 1948. One year after being pardoned from the Valley of the Fallen, Miquel Mascarell, the last policeman from Republican Barcelona, has rebuilt his life alongside Patro, the young woman he has already saved twice. A visit from a frightening man and his strange mission--to search for the tomb of his nephew who died on July 18, 1936--once again drives the former inspector to distraction, facing his ghosts, his survival, and a strange city that is living the post-war in search of a new future. At the same time, in Madrid, a court-martial judges the resistance movement fighting against the dictatorship. What secret is being hidden by the body of that young man whose tomb Mascarell is searching for, twelve years after the fact and without living witnesses of the incident? Set with precision in the Spain of the era, Five Days of October is a novel that makes us return to the past to--hopefully--understand our present and the way we survive.
