Estocada
Estocada by Graham Hurley
 Spoils of War

'Liked this. Went someway to plugging the ginormous hole that Philip Kerr's sad passing has left in my life' DERMOT O'LEARY.

1937. Flying for the infamous Condor Legion over the battlefields of Spain's civil war, Merz has been able to unleash the fearsome potential of the Luftwaffe's newest weapon against his opponents. In Dieter's hands, the Messerschmitt Bf-109 is as graceful as a matador's killing strike: la estocada.

Scotsman and ex-marine Tam Moncrieff is recruited by a nameless intelligence agency in London to go to Germany and sound out Hitler's resolve. Does he really intend to invade Czechoslovakia? Do his generals support him? Can the march to war be stopped?

As duty collides with conscience, fate will bring both men together. In a world wedded to violence and ambition, desperate steps must be taken. To avoid war a killing strike is needed: la estocada.

The question is, who is the matador, who is the bull?

REVIEWS
'Graham Hurley is one of Britain's most under-appreciated thriller writers ... [Estocada is] an engrossing read'
Crime Time
'Hurley weaves fact and fiction seamlessly together in another excellent work of suspense and intrigue'
Soldier Magazine
'With a strong plot, the author brings alive this period of intense political and social drama. The main characters are well-written, with the use of actual historical characters – Ribbentrop, Hitler, Churchill, etc., giving structure and support'
