Aventuras, intrigas y conspiraciones en la España de Fernando VII y la América previa a las guerras de independencia. En plena época de restauración de Fernando VII y con el trasfondo histórico de las luchas independentistas en Perú, Jorge Eduardo Benavides narra la aventura del general Goyeneche y su viaje de ida y vuelta a Arequipa para recuperar unos papeles comprometedores que ponen en riesgo su vida y su patrimonio. A partir de esta intriga, Benavides construye una gran novela de suspense, admirablemente bien escrita, con complejos enigmas y una gran historia de amor cuyo epicentro es el convento de Santa Catalina, un nido de pasiones en el que confluyen muchos de los conflictos sociales de Perú y en el que se perciben las enconadas batallas entre absolutistas fernandinos y liberales y entre fieles a la corona e independentistas.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 842041753X, Paperback)

1814. After demonstrating his loyalty to Fernando by fighting against the pro-independence colonists in the Americas, General Goyeneche is called to the Spanish Court to help the monarchy fight the liberal movement that is trying to reinstate the Constitution of Cádiz. But in these tumultuous times, everything moves along the fine line that separates loyalty from treason, and anyone can be accused of conspiring against the king. Because of that, the general embarks on a journey to recover compromising papers that are hidden in Peru, and which put his reputation, his fortune, and his life at risk. With admirable use of suspense, Jorge Eduardo Benavides constructs a novel full of intrigue, which has at its epicenter the Convent of Santa Catalina, in Arequipa, Perú. In its walls are important documents that could compromise the lives of all who appear in them. Only when evil breaks into the tranquil grounds of the convent, it will be necessary to keep safe the secrets that have been kept for centuries.
