A fascinating look into the elegant and turbulent Barcelona of the 1920s, and a historical detective novel—based on real events and characters—that unravels an intricate web of political intrigue and chronicles the end of a dazzling era

In the early 1920s, Barcelona is on the verge of boiling over. Pablo Vilar, a well-connected young lawyer and journalist, meets several mysterious people who seem to hold clues to what is brewing in the city. The diverse cast of characters includes an assaulted cabaret artist, an anarchist leader, the city’s new, autocratic civil governor, and a beautiful, wealthy countess—their destinies all bound by invisible ties.
While the city both touches its zenith and peers into the abyss, Vilar guides us through a labyrinth that leads from the caverns of Montjuïc, home to paupers and outlaws, to the high-society parties in the gardens of Horta. Based on documents from the author’s family archives, A Barcelona Heiress provides a fresh perspective on a complex and dramatic period.
