Before Pascual Rose was resurrected after almost twenty years, in this year’s Fall anticipated thriller KILL CHAIN (Dunn Books; October 6, 2020), Pascual was a marked man lying low. In the 1980s, he was a courier for a network of radical groups that spread terror across Europe in the name of separatism and liberation. That is, until he defected to the Mossad and CIA, selling out his former comrades save one—his old flame, the beautiful Katixa.
Then he vanished along with his new identity into the streets of Barcelona, his childhood home. Sleeping in flophouses and living hand to mouth, Pascual spends his days trying to atone for his sins among the city’s teeming alleys and taverns. He keeps a low profile, hiding from old associates looking to exact revenge.
But just when he thinks he’s finally shed his past, Katixa bursts back into his life with a suitcase full of cash hijacked from an ETA kidnapping, looking for a one-way ticket out of Spain—with Pascual. His better judgment doesn’t stand a chance. Pascual goes on the run with Katixa. Nothing is what it seems, and betrayals lurk at every turn. When Pascual realizes that everyone is lying to him, the crying and the dying cannot be far behind.
