The Man Who Killed Durruti

by Pedro de Paz - £7.99 (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781873976265 | ISBN 10: 1873976267

A former policeman, now a Major in the Spanish Republican Army, is sent to Madrid to investigate the circumstances in which the legendary anarchist was killed. In his search for the truth he interviews the key witnesses and uncovers a number of contradictory accounts. Nobody tells the same story in quite the same way, but as an experienced police officer he knows it is not inconceivable that they are all telling the truth. But its also possible that some of them are lying, that some are trying to hide what they know, and, more sinisterly, that some may be seeking to sabotage his investigation for darker political ends.
Making imaginative and ingenious use of the detective novel as a literary device, Pedro de Paz explores various hypotheses and scenarios that could at last provide us, seventy years on, with believable explanations about the chain of events leading to the death of a truly remarkable man.
