This collection by one of nineteenth-century Spain's greatest short story writers contains eight tales, including "The Nail, " considered by some critics to be the first example of a detective story in Spanish literature. It also includes two inspired by the first Carlist War; and five inspired by the War of Independence. The passion, drama, dialogue, characterization, and swift movement show why Alarcon is one of Spain's great storytellers.
