In September 1940, the Spanish Civil War is over and Madrid lies in ruins . . .

Into this uncertain world comes Harry Brett, a reluctant spy for the British Secret Service who was traumatized by his recent experience at Dunkirk. Sent to Spain to gain the confidence of Sandy Forsyth, an old school friend turned shady Madrid businessman, Brett finds himself involved in a dangerous game and surrounded by memories. Meanwhile, Sandy's girlfriend, ex-Red Cross nurse Barbara Clare, is engaged in a secret mission of her own -- to find her former lover who has vanished on the bloody battlefields of the Jarama.

Winter in Madrid is a riveting tale that offers a remarkable sense of history unfolding and the profound impact of impossible choices.
