1898 Vol. 4: Truenos en la Distancia. This issue narrates the story of Alfonso Ruiz Bassen's arrival to San Juan, his explorations through the Island and the beginning of his new mission: to closely monitor Luis Muñoz Rivera. In the process, he meets Vicente Bosque, a wealthy land owner friend of Muñoz, and his daughter Milagros de la Esperanza, goddaughter of the political leader. Ruiz Bassen marries the girl and establishes a close relationship with the leader. The couple settles in Ponce while the Spanish spy retains his apartment in San Juan, as part of his coverup as a representative of the German Investment Banks.
One night, thunder is heard in the distance. San Juan is being bombed. A terrifying rain of explosives fall down on the city bringing panic, destruction and death to the citizens. A doctor from Bayamón, who contemplates the terrible event, manages to arrive to Cataño, from where he crosses the bay, in spite of the showering missiles splashing alongside the fragile craft. The Spanish spy recognizes him and takes advantage of this opportunity to establish a personal relation with the political rival of Luis Muñoz Rivera, Jose Celso Barbosa. Tax included.
