Ben Pastor is back with a new novel. The Horseman’s Song is the sixth in the Martin Bora WWII crime collection and the prequel to the whole series. Set during the Spanish Civil War, the action takes place in the high sierras of Aragon, where a troop of Franco’s volunteers under the orders of Wehrmacht officer Martin Bora face a platoon from the International Brigades. The focal point of the story is the mystery of the poet Federico Garcia Lorca’s murder. His body was never found. It is still being looked for today.

To celebrate the publication of The Horseman’s Song, Bitter Lemon Press is offering five Crime Club readers the chance to win three titles from the backlist:

  • Lumen
  • Liar Moon
  • A Dark Song of Blood
  • Tin Sky
  • Road to Ithaca
