Galardonada en 1962 con el Premio Formentor, Tormenta de verano es una de las mejores novelas españolas de la segunda mitad del siglo XX y sin duda la obra más ambiciosa y perdurable de lo que en su momento se llamó realismo social.
La novela arranca con una escena brutal: una joven aparece muerta, desnuda, en una playa de una urbanización de lujo. El descubrimiento llevará al protagonista a una profunda crisis moral y a una revisión de sus valores. Paralela a la investigación policial de la muerte de la mujer, se extiende la trama de las relaciones del narrador con sus familia y sus amigos, de sus formas de vida y pensamiento.
Severa crítica de la sociedad española tardofranquista, ?Tormenta de verano? mantiene intacta su fuerza gracias a la cuidada elaboración de la prosa y al valiente engaste ideológico de la trama.
