The second swashbuckling adventure in the internationally acclaimed Captain Alatriste series

Captain Alatriste, Madrids most charismatic swashbuckler, returns in Pérez-Revertes acclaimed international bestseller. The fearless Alatriste is hired to infiltrate a convent and rescue a young girl forced to serve as a powerful priests concubine. The girls father is barred from legal recourse as the priest threatens to reveal that the mans family is "not of pure blood" and is, in fact, of Jewish descentwhich will all but destroy the family name. As Alatriste struggles to save the young hostage from being burned at the stake, he soon finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that leads all the way to the heart of the Spanish Inquisition. A literary thriller that delivers adventure and rich historical detail, Purity of Blood captivates to the final page.
