BOOK: 'The Man Who Killed Durruti' by Pedro de Paz (ISBN - 1873976267 Euros
12.00) A former policeman, now a Major in the Spanish Republican Army, is
sent to Madrid to investigate the circumstances in which the legendary
anarchist was killed. In his search for the truth he interviews they key
witnesses and uncovers a number of contradictory accounts. Nobody tells the
same story in quite the same way, but as an experienced police officer he
knows it is not inconceivable that they are al telling the truth. But it is
also possible that some of them are lying, that some are trying to hide what
they know and, more sinisterly, that some may be seeking to sabotage his
investigation for darker political ends.
