Miquel Mascarell, el último policía de la Barcelona republicana, sale en libertad después de ser indultado de la pena de muerte y de haber pasado los últimos años de su vida en el Valle de los Caídos. De vuelta a casa, a una ciudad casi irreconocible en la que ya no tiene nada ni le queda nadie, recibe un misterioso sobre con una fotografía, dinero y una dirección que su instinto de policía no puede ignorar. A lo largo de una semana descubrirá los nuevos caminos que la dictadura está entretejiendo en Barcelona y en España: el estraperlo y sus grandes riquezas floreciendo entre los vencedores; el hambre y la miseria sepultando todavía a los vencidos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The second novel starring the charismatic inspector Miquel Mascarell, who is back in the Barcelona of the ´40s after more than eight years in prison, and who again finds himself with a fascinating case that only he can solve. 1947. Miquel Mascarell, the last policeman from Republican Barcelona, is set free after being pardoned from a death sentence and having spent the last several years of his life in the Valley of the Fallen. Once back home in a city that is almost unrecognizeable and in which he has nothing and no one left, he receives a mysterious envelope with a photograph, money, and an address, which his policeman´s instinct can´t ignore. Over the course of a week, he discovers the new paths that the dictatorship is getting mixed up in, both in Barcelona and in Spain in general: the black market and its great riches that flourishes among the victors; the hunger and poverty still burying the defeated. With a true and detailed recreation of the atmosphere in the city at that time, Seven Days in July tells of the human condition stretched to the limit, and also of its resistance and eternal hope.

In one of the most valuable recent works on this subject, Oren, a scholar and Senior Fellow at the Shalem Center, Jerusalem, details events from the Six Day War known in the Arab world as Al-Naksah or simply the June war. ´´This is not only the best book so far written on the Six-Day War, it is likely to remain the best.´´--´´The Washington Post Book World.´´ NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? The first comprehensive account of the epoch-making Six-Day War, from the author of Ally-now featuring a fiftieth-anniversary retrospective Though it lasted for only six tense days in June, the 1967 Arab-Israeli war never really ended. Every crisis that has ripped through this region in the ensuing decades, from the Yom Kippur War of 1973 to the ongoing intifada, is a direct consequence of those six days of fighting. Writing with a novelist´s command of narrative and a historian´s grasp of fact and motive, Michael B. Oren reconstructs both the lightning-fast action on the battlefields and the political shocks that electrified the world. Extraordinary personalities-Moshe Dayan and Gamal Abdul Nasser, Lyndon Johnson and Alexei Kosygin-rose and toppled from power as a result of this war; borders were redrawn; daring strategies brilliantly succeeded or disastrously failed in a matter of hours. And the balance of power changed-in the Middle East and in the world. A towering work of history and an enthralling human narrative, Six Days of War is the most important book on the Middle East conflict to appear in a generation. Praise for Six Days of War ´´Powerful . . . A highly readable, even gripping account of the 1967 conflict . . . [Oren] has woven a seamless narrative out of a staggering variety of diplomatic and military strands.´´-The New York Times ´´With a remarkably assured style, Oren elucidates nearly every aspect of the conflict. . . . Oren´s [book] will remain the authoritative chronicle of the war. His achievement as a writer and a historian is awesome.´´-The Atlantic Monthly ´´This is not only the best book so far written on the six-day war, it is likely to remain the best.´´-The Washington Post Book World ´´Phenomenal . . . breathtaking history . . . a profoundly talented writer. . . . This book is not only one of the best books on this critical episode in Middle East history; it´s one of the best-written books I´ve read this year, in any genre.´´-The Jerusalem Post ´´[In] Michael Oren´s richly detailed and lucid account, the familiar story is thrilling once again. . . . What makes this book important is the breadth and depth of the research.´´-The New York Times Book Review ´´A first-rate new account of the conflict.´´-The Washington Post ´´The definitive history of the Six-Day War . . . [Oren´s] narrative is precise but written with great literary flair. In no one else´s study is there more understanding or more surprise.´´-Martin Peretz, Publisher, The New Republic ´´Compelling, perhaps even vital, reading.´´-San Jose Mercury News

The Seven Days Campaign was a series of battles fought near Richmond at the end of June 1862. General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia had routed General George B. McClellan’s Army of the Potomac. Depriving McClellan of a military decision meant the war would continue for two more years. The Seven Days depicts a critical turning point in the Civil War that would ingrain Robert E. Lee in history as one of the finest generals of all time.
