Marta Vives, young assistant to the lawyer Marcos Solana, is working to uncover the mystery behind the death of a member of Barcelona’s high society. During the investigation, Marta will also become caught up in the feud that has been underway for two centuries between the family of the dead man and another powerful clan in the city, the Masdeus. Marta’s story is accompanied by another voice: that of a restless narrator speaking to us from the mean streets of Medieval Barcelona, persecuted by the inquisition, and a witness to some of the most important moments in the history of the city.
The hidden history of Barcelona lies within this absorbing novel: a book that is both a thrilling adventure and, at the same time, a homage to a marvellous city.
