Valencia, Spain: October 1957 – After a long hot summer, Guardia Civil officers José Morales Ruiz and Fermín Belasco Ibarra have had enough of their lives. Sick of dealing with lowlifes and those left powerless under Franco’s ruthless dictatorship, the friends devise acomplex system of stealing babies, to be sent away to paying families. But as the October rains fall, the dry Valencian streets fill with muddy water, and only greed and self-preservation will survive…It’s 2010, and Luna Montgomery is busier than ever. With the mystery of her murdered grandfather solved, she reluctantly prepares to be the bride in Spain’s ‘wedding of the year’. But four more bodies lie hidden at Escondrijo, Luna’s farm in the Valencian mountains. Her fiancé, bullfighter Cayetano Beltrán Morales, is not eager to have his name brought up in a post-civil war burial excavation. When Cayetano’s grandfather José, an evil Franco supporter, starts to push his ideals on Luna, her decision to join the Beltrán family comes under scrutiny.The Tour de France is fast approaching, and Luna’s position as a bike mechanic on Valencia’s new cycling team begins to come under pressure. When an ‘accident’ occurs at Escondrijo, lives hang in the balance as more of Spain’s ghosts come to life and tell the story of a flood in 1957…

CAROLINE ANGUS BAKER is a New Zealand author. A trained sailmaker, Caroline has gone from long hours behind sewing machines, to competing in national sailing competitions, to attending international sailing regattas. She has cycled down Hawaiian volcanoes, been served dinner by billionaires, bumped into supermodels and movie stars, fumbled to find the right words on Italian live television, walked the red carpet at fashion events, fought off Moroccan muggers, soaked up a Norwegian Christmas, watched whales in Canada, slept on the floor in Dubai, played in the German snow, partied on the Great Barrier Reef, got lost in London, passed out in Thailand and dodged bushfires in Australia. A Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Italian culture and years of keeping a diary of life in Spain later, Caroline returned to New Zealand, and began to write all she had seen and heard. After a Diploma in Business, and thousands of hours studying the Spanish civil war, Spanish and bullfighting history, it became Caroline's time to turn to fiction. From growing up humble in small town New Zealand to travelling the world, she now lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband and four young sons. Another adventure could be just around the corner.

    This book is tremendous in that it is a history book,the Spanish civil war,a mystery the search for relatives last heard of in the civil war,and finally alove story of 2 lonely people who meet and fall in love whilst searching in the past.A wonderful read that you cannot put down wanting to find the end.the locations and there descriptions of Valencia and it's countryside are really good and make the reader want to be there. All in all a really good read and congratulations to the author on very fine novel indeed

    I found this second book just as good as the first. I live in Spain and am quite interested in the civil war but I knew nothing about the aftermath. I couldn't believe that the baby stealing went on for so long. And with all the aftermath of the war being wound around a love story I just didn't want it to finish. I am now just waiting for the third book in the series to be written.I don't normally like books that flick back and forward in time but this worked beautifully. And of course I can't wait to visit Valencia and visit some of the places she mentioned.Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    Further evidence of what Spain was like even after the war had ended, shocking at times. Linked to bicycle racing in the present day the story had a different twist. It was all quite good for anyone with an interest in how Spain really functioned for many years.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this follow up book to Blood on the Valencian Soil. It was a joy to read and extremely hard to put down. Am looking forward to the next one.
