Arturo Perez Reverte
He is well known outside Spain for his " Alatriste " series of novels. He is now a member of the Royal Spanish Academy , a position he has held since 12 June Most of his novels take place in Spain or around the Mediterranean , and often draw on numerous references to Spanish history , colonial past , art and culture, ancient treasures and the sea. The novels frequently deal with some of the major issues of modern Spain such as drug trafficking or the relationship of religion and politics. For example, in The Club Dumas , the protagonist is searching the world for a lost book and keeps meeting people who parallel figures from Dumas novels; the movie made from it, The Ninth Gate , did not feature the Dumas connection with no loss of narrative momentum. In The Flanders Panel , a contemporary serial killer is juxtaposed with the mystery of a year-old assassination.
