El caballero del jubón amarillo (V)

Arturo Pérez-Reverte

En la quinta entrega de la serie de aventuras del capitán Alatriste, el célebre soldado, su gran amigo don Francisco de Quevedo y su protegido Íñigo Balboa se ven envueltos en una peligrosa aventura donde, a solicitud de Lope de Vega, deberán arriesgar sus vidas para proteger la del rey, Felipe IV, a quien acechan enemigos poderosos que también lo son del capitán: Alquézar, Bocanegra y Malatesta. Gran parte de las acciones tienen como trasfondo el mundo del teatro del Siglo de Oro, sus creadores y su representación en corrales para gusto de todo Madrid, sin distinción de posición social, lo que da lugar a que Íñigo se reencuentre con Calderón de la Barca y conozca a Tirso de Molina y a la bellísima actriz María de Castro.English Description:Discover the new adventures of Diego Alatriste and his young partner, Íñigo Balboa, in the long-awaited fifth installment of the famous adventures of Capitán Alatriste. Madrid, 1626, this new story is set in the middle of an aristocratic love affair between Alatriste and María de Castro, the most beautiful and famous actress of the Golden Era; a woman who is also being courted by Felipe IV. Action, history and adventure come together like a whirlpool in these unforgettable pages of dangerous and exciting adventures.

This story takes us to the Madrid of Lope de Vega, of Calderón de la Barca and of Tirso de Molina, to the filthy alleys, royal conspiracies, and all the intrigues that brew in the theaters of the XVII century. Between Madrid and El Escorial we witness these new adventures, full of passion, vengeance and dangers, all through the eyes and narration of the always-faithful Íñigo Balboa.
