"Los beatos mueren a las cinco" begins in 1936, when seven Colombians, brothers of the Order of San Juan de Dios, provide their services as hospital nurses in the San José sanatorium in Ciempozuelos. They are captured by the Republican government in the early days of the Spanish Civil War. In October 1992, Concha attends the beatification of her brother, one of the seven men, and the other Colombian victims of the Civil War. By chance or by fate, she meets a couple who reveal important information about her brother's death. In this fascinating novel, author Víctor Diusabá brings to light a historical fact unknown to many, which has particular relevance in the current public discourse on victim reparation.
