Teresa Mendoza's boyfriend is a drug smuggler who the narcos of Sinaloa, Mexico, call "the king of the short runway," because he can get a plane full of cocaine off the ground in three hundred yards. But in a ruthless business, life can be short, and Teresa even has a special cell phone that Guero gave her along with a dark warning. If that phone rings, it means he's dead, and she'd better run, because they're coming for her next. Then the call comes. In order to survive, she will have to say goodbye to the old Teresa. She will have to find inside herself a woman who is tough enough to inhabit an ugly and dangerous world. And indeed, the strength of the woman who emerges will surprise even those who know her legend. --Cover, p. 4

Lucas Corso, middle-aged, tired, and cynical, is a book detective, a mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found hanged, leaving behind part of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment. The task seems straightforward, but the unsuspecting Corso is soon drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do among a cast of characters bearing a suspicious resemblance to those of Dumas's masterpiece. Aided by a mysterious beauty named for a Conan Doyle heroine, Corso travels from Madrid to Toledo to Paris in pursuit of a sinister and seemingly omniscient killer. "A cross between Umberto Eco and Anne Rice. Think of The Club Dumas as a beach book for intellectuals."--New York Daily News.

La primera novela de Arturo Perez-Reverte en una nueva edicion revisada por el autor. "Un relato esplondido sobre la desmitificacion de la guerra y la muerte de todo heroismo, en plena epoca napoleonica." ... Rafael Conte "Un relato intenso y habil que hoy figura para mi entre lo mejor del conjunto de su obra. Su historia, las experiencias militares en Andalucia, en 1808, del subteniente del ejercito napoleonico Frederic Gluntz, habla de una cosa, del desarrollo de unas batallas, y se refiere a otra, al sentido de la vida y a la condicion humana frente a una situacion limite. Un relato de accion, pero no solo ni sobre todo." ... Santos Sanz Villanueva
