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
The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte( Book )

244 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 2,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Part mystery, part puzzle, part witty intertextual game, The Club Dumas is a wholly original intellectual thriller by the internationally bestselling author of The Flanders Panel and The Seville Communion. Lucas Corso's search for the original copy of a book of the occult takes him from Madrid to Paris and into a secret society of antiquarians

"A man lives alone in a watchtower by the sea. On the circular wails of the tower he is painting a grand mural - the timeless landscape of a battle.

But then one day a stranger knocks on his door and announces that he has come to kill him. The man is a shadow from his past, a former soldier and one of the myriad faces of war that enabled Faulques to become rich and famous. The two begin a chess game of words, delving into both their pasts, a doomed love affair and a tragic betrayal. For as long as he can maintain a dialogue with this man, Faulques will be safe."
