"Carr recreates for us a dramatic time and place filled with complex characters and issues that resonate powerfully with our own time."--Matthew Pearl, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 'The Dante Club' [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona'] "Criminal Element [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']"
"Carr combines fiction with fact (including historical characters). The result is a vivid portrayal of Barcelona's 'Tragic Week' of political and social conflict, a skillfully crafted account that is ultimately as much history as mystery."-- "Booklist"
"A superior mystery. Carr excels at incorporating early 20th-century Spanish political developments into a suspenseful and clever plot line. Philip Kerr fans will be pleased." -- "Publishers Weekly (starred)"
"A page-turner in the proper sense. Mr. Carr has written a gripping and enjoyable novel."-- "Wall Street Journal [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']"
"A thrilling quest for justice. As exciting as it is enlightening from its first pages to its satisfying end."-- "The New York Times Book Review [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']"
"One of those rare historical mysteries that is as thrilling as it is thoughtful. Beautifully delivered. An intelligent, entertaining book."-- "Criminal Element [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']"
"Full of engaging male and female characters, with a great sense of time and place. A treat."--Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona'] "Criminal Element [Praise for 'The Devils of Cardona']"
