Ledesma is a genious in understanding the workings of the criminal mind and is incomparable in his ability to help us to understand the pitfalls of human weakness. A girl who lives isolated and alone in a house that receives a suspicious number of visitors, a man who accepts a mission to kill again, a bride who shoots her groom in the middle of a wedding. Do any of these crimes have anything in common?

Life and death co-exist in this page-turning story, challenging the expectations of the reader by showing us that the line between them is much finer that in seems.
