Synopsis: From international bestselling author Arturo Pérez-Reverte comes the fourth adventure of Captain Alatriste in the “series [that] recalls the great adventure novels of Dumas and Scott”(The New York Times).

Seville, 1626. After serving with honor at the bloody siege of Breda, Captain Alatriste and his protégé, Iñigo Balboa, accept a risky job involving a dozen swordsmen and mercenaries at their command, a dazzling amount of contraband gold, and a heavily guarded Spanish galleon returning from the West Indies. The job offer comes from the king himself, for at stake is nothing less than the Spanish Crown, and its dominion over the wealth of the Americas. But for Alatriste, a very personal surprise awaits him on that galleon.
