Barcelona at Dawn

Summary

The year is 1923. On a hot summer night, four corpses wash up at the
          port of Barcelona. When Journalist Pere Marsé investigates these
          murders he is shocked to discover that one of the victims is in fact
          a German policeman. As he digs even deeper, Marsé soon realizes this
          is only the tip of what turns out to be an intricate plot of both
          criminal and political intrigue. As each layer of the onion is peeled
          away, more questions than answers come to the surface. Anarchists,
          local police, German nationals, French Secret Service and Military
          leaders all play their parts. This fascinating book -- based on real
          circumstances and characters -- recounts events that happened in
          Barcelona in the early 1920s. These events were a direct reason why
          Hitler failed with his attempted coup in Munich on November 8, 1923.
