The Girl From Barcelona
Book One of Daniela's Story
by Peter Woodbridge

It wasn’t meant to happen. One of his rare mistakes. Daniela’s parents and brother weren’t meant to be there. Raphael Robles lies to his young niece about their deaths. For him, the cover-up is easy; he’s one of Spain’s top counterterrorism cops. Years later, living at his house, Daniela discovers the truth. They were killed in the Atocha train station bombing. She stumbles over a dark and fiendish secret: her uncle is a traitor. He’s operating deep undercover for al-Rashid, the emerging leader of al-Qaeda and architect of the massacre. Bent on revenge, she bides her time. Her fiance is murdered near the Sagrada Familia. Catalan police detectives investigate—immediately clashing with Madrid’s federal forces, who know a lot more than they’re admitting. DI Antonio Valls suspects a cover-up but is unprepared for Daniela—and the shocking events that are about to unfold. The Girl from Barcelona is the first book in the Daniela’s Story trilogy. Based on the Arabic saying, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” her journey weaves an intricate web of espionage, suspense and deception.
