Mexico City, 1649. The Spanish Inquisition holds sway over the capital and at its core lies one ambition: the submission of all to the Catholic faith. Fray Alonso, one of the Inquisitions’ most zealous advocates is forced to leave the capital and head northwards. On his journey he is accompanied by a sole prisoner, Juan, a captured ‘Marrano’ with whom he forges an unlikely friendship which alters both mens’ lives. Let Jeffrey Lewis be your guide to this forgotten world, filled with intrigue and secrecy, where questions of faith and loyalty are at the heart of every relationship.
