From the Back Cover
In 1937 a group of Spaniards are thrown together, forced to wait out the Spanish Civil War in Rome. Unlike the rest of his compatriots, José María has no strong feelings either way about the ideologies causing such bloodshed in his home country; it is only the beautiful and bookish Montse who ignites his passion. Unwittingly, they become embroiled in an underground Nazi plot to collect mystic artifacts. The most powerful artifact sought is the Creator's Map, a legendary document depicting the power centers of the universe, said to be penned by God himself. The idealistic Montse is recruited as a spy and becomes more and more deeply involved in espionage, as does José María, for his own reasons.
The Creator's Map brilliantly re-creates the dark intrigue, romantic entanglements, and divided loyalties of war-torn Europe. Long after the war is over, the destinies of these characters continue to be shaped by the devastating repercussions of this tumultuous time.
