Exclusive Book Launch: David Ebsworth - The Assassin's Mark

Thursday 6th June 2013 6:30pm - 7:45pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

September 1938. Spain's Civil War has been raging for two years, the outcome still in the balance. But rebel General Franco is so confident of winning that he has opened up battlefield tourism along the country's north coast.

Jack Telford, a left-wing reporter, finds himself with an eccentric group of tourists on one of the War Route's yellow Chrysler buses. Driven by his passion for peace, Telford attempts to uncover the hidden truths beneath the conflict.

But Jack must contend first with his own gullibility, the tragic death of a fellow passenger, capture by Republican guerrilleros, a final showdown at Spain's most holy shrine and the possibility that he has been badly betrayed. Betrayed and in serious danger.

David Ebsworth is the pen name of writer Dave McCall, a former negotiator and Regional Secretary for the Transport & General Workers' Union. He was born in Liverpool but has lived for the past thirty years in Wrexham with his wife, Ann. Since their retirement in 2008, the couple have spent about six months of each year in southern Spain. Dave began to write seriously in 2009.

Join David Ebsworth and SilverWood Books as we celebrate the launch of The Assassin's Mark at Foyles Bristol. Refreshments will be served, and there's no need to book - just turn up!
