El capitán Alatriste by Augusto Pérez-Reverte.  

Paperback, 240 pages.

Diego Alatriste is a swordsman in a dangerous and corrupt 17th Century Spain, where his services are requested to settle debts or restore a family's reputation. When wounded in battle during the Thirty Years' War, he is forced to retire from the army. Now he lives a relatively quiet life of a swordsman-for-hire in Madrid. When he is hired by the Holy Inquisition to kill two mysterious travelers, guests of the British ambassador, he knows he is in serious trouble.

No era el hombre mas honesto y piadoso pero era un hombre valiente.. Con estas palabras empieza El Capitan Alatriste, la historia de un soldado veterano de los tercios de Flandes que malvive como espadachin a sueldo en el Madrid del siglo XVII. Sus peligrosas y apasionantes aventuras nos sumergen sin aliento en las intrigas de la Corte de una Espana corrupta y en decadencia, las emboscadas en callejones oscuros entre el brillo de los aceros, las tabernas donde Francisco de Quevedo compone sonetos entre pendencias y botellas de vino, o los corrales de comedias donde las representaciones de Lope de Vega terminan a cuchilladas.
