This is an elegant, intellectual mystery.  Set in 19th-century Madrid, Don Jaime is a fencing master and a man that holds to the old traditions.  Into his life comes a mysterious woman who seeks fencing instruction and who demonstrates amazing talent.  What follows is a satisfying, intriguing mystery.  If you love beautifully written, intellectually challenging, original mysteries, give Arturo Pérez-Reverte a try.

      I’ve read five of his books…The Seville Communion, The Fencing Master, The Flanders Panel, The Club Dumas and The Nautical Chart. Each time I read one I think, “How can anyone be so smart and clever?” I need to pick up another one soon. As you’ve said before, “So many books to read!”
