Editorial Planeta, Premio de Novela Fernando Lara Sinopsis : Principios de septiembre de Entre vive con su familia en el sur de Francia. Synopsis : September The First Republic is in its death throes after just nine months of rule. The journalist Patrick Boyd arrives in Spain with a mission: to investigate the murder of his friend General Prim, the President of the Government and the most powerful man in the country, three years before.
Patrick, the illegitimate son of a young Andalusian woman and the Irishman Robert Boyd who was shot in Malaga next to Torrijos and fifty comrades, is determined to find out who plotted an assassination that changed the course of Spanish history. His gripping investigation will be based in Madrid but will also take him from Seville to France and end back on Andalusian land on the eve of the military coup that would end the Republican dream for over half a century.
My take : First of all a brief review of the history of Spain. On 30 December , three days after a terrorist attack that took place at calle del Turco present day calle del Marques de Cubas , General Juan Prim y Prats, President of the Council of Ministers, dies in Madrid as a result of the injuries received.
Even though the cause of his death was subject to all kinds of rumours for a long time, today it has been proven that he died from blood infection septicaemia.
The material authorship of the attack, subject to a lengthy discussion for years, has also been proven nowadays. In any case the assassination of Prim marked the beginning of the end of the Spanish Constitution, that put an end to the absolute monarchy and established for the first time in Spain a framework of true democratic principles and of individual rights although reserved exclusively for men.
La berlina de Prim is a detective novel whose action unfolds within a very specific historical context. It is written in the form of a journalistic investigation and with the particular features of a travel book. All in all, a highly entertaining historical novel recommended to aficionados alike of both historical and detective fiction.

If you love Spain and you fancy historical novels, detective fiction, and XIX century travel books, you may be as interested as I am in this one. The only drawback so far is its price.
