The plot is set in Germany after the First World War, a thriller that begins one night in 1941 aboard a patrol Spanish ship at the Gibraltar Strait, where Captain González ends rescuing the only survivors from a shipwreck whom he manages to take to the coast of Portugal. The shipwrecked Germans, as a token of their gratitude, present Captain González with a gold emblem, and two words the German leader of the rescued lot will remember for all his life and throughout the novel: "treason" and "salvation". This novel is being translated into 40 languages. Kirkus Reviews praised "The traitor's emblem": "riveting thriller with a redeeming love story".
