“Unexpected twists and remarkable encounters, good guys and bad guys, love and adventure, all in the best tradition of dramatic storytelling. With one extra ingredient: intelligent—it might be more accurate to say ‘perfect’—reconstruction of the historical setting.”—Corriere della Sera
The Island of Last Truth is part adventure story, part noir, and party mystery. Company has written a great page-turner that, like many novels belonging to the adventure genre, doesn’t shy away from incisive observations about the nature of human relations.
With echoes of timeless fairy tales and Shakespearean tragedy, masterfully told, THE FROST ON HIS SHOULDERS is a moving and captivating account of the power of human emotions, and also an allegorical depiction of Spain on the eve of the Civil War.
