‘Spain, Guard my bones’, gets advertised in London Review of Books
Jack has written a phenomenal thriller that uses a slow burn of suspense to play with your mind. The book portrays the story of a journalist who sets out on a journey to explore Spain as a tourist, to relax and escape from the pressures of work. But in the sudden turn of events, the situation forces him to follow his gut and seek answers, as a mass grave of Civil War victims has been discovered at Castillo. He join hands with a lawyer, Carlito, and an archaeologist, Elena, to chase the story of corruption in a land where old-fashioned political prejudices die hard. He travels from country to city, and back again to look for hidden answers. Dodging bullets, Arab bodyguards, and untrustworthy officials, the shambling journalist seems certain to face many triumphs as well as the loss of friendships, loves and hopes. It is a page turning story that will keep you glued till the end.
