In 1810, José de San Martín deserts the Spanish Army and returns home to Buenos Aires to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.
Struggling with an increasing dependence on opiates, San Martín forms a secret army of thieves, mercenaries, slaves, and prostitutes to free Argentina from the Spanish Empire.
A Storm Hits Valparaíso is an epic, 400-page historical adventure with a huge cast of characters whose stories gradually interweave, including: two brothers torn apart by love: a slave running for his life, a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption in a foreign land: an Indian trapped in the death mines of Potosí: and a Spanish general who deserts the army to raise the flag of rebellion against Madrid.
