JORGE GALAN    Book Number: 87684    Product format: Hardback

A tragic, horrific story based on true events which took place in November 1989 at the Jesuit University in San Salvador when six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter were murdered by a group of armed men. El Salvador is immersed in the horrors of a bloody civil war. In the days that follow, the new rector, Father Tojeira is forced to confront the society in which he lives and discover who these assassins are. The only witness however has been silenced by the authorities. Father Jon Sobrino's lifeless body had been dragged to the room the Archbishop usually occupies. "It shocked him to imagine that scene...he thought he saw a message in the fact that when his body bumped against a bookcase, a copy of 'Jesus Crucificado' fell out and was later found to be stained with the priest's blood." Father Moreno had been born in Navarre, Spain in 1933 and arrived as a novitiate at a very young age like many of the others. This is a prize winning Spanish novel, first time translated. 293pp in handsome 2019 hardback.
