"Esteban refilled our glasses. 'We have a phrase in Spanish. 'Mil Cortes'. 'A thousand cuts,' I said, and Esteban nodded. 'Small acts of resistance. We may be few, but together we can change the world. To the 'Mil Cortes'. Salud.' In a place like Gibraltar, the troubles of the past are never far from the surface. Just one scratch and the old poisons bleed through. What could link a catastrophic dockyard bomb in the Second World War to a series of shocking murders in the present day? Is retribution finally being served? Or is a ruthless killer trying to cover his tracks? When a routine court case takes a sinister turn, defence lawyer Spike Sanguinetti starts asking dangerous questions that nobody seems to want answered. Soon, it's not just the truth that's at stake: it is everything and everyone that Spike holds precious. As the sun beats relentlessly down, crimes of the past and present collide, relationships are tested and long-buried secrets exposed. Who can Spike trust? And where do his own loyalties lie?.
