Is it possible to be unscathed by the desire for more? A belief in your invincibility will betray you in the end.
The literary debut of journalist David Lema.
At land’s end, where the sea mist cloaks entire villages, hiding them from view, and the dead rest in cemeteries overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the corpse of a junkie appears one winter night. Although the evidence gathered by the coroner points to murder, the case is not investigated.
Civil Guard sergeant Santiago Insua leads Operation Arnela, an anti-drug trafficking investigation intent on ending the reign of two local drug lords: Castijo de Dios and Mangana. His discoveries end in tragedy described in a diary whose contents remain unknown. And he loses his life.
As the tranquility of the village of Pescos is disrupted by events more violent than a northern storm, Sergeant Carla Traba travels to Fisterra to try to shed light on a case in which the key to keeping his sanity will depend on his deciphering as quickly as possible the numerous deaths. The investigation is set amid fog and he can't stand the borraxeira, that thick, low mist that rises from the sea and devours the land. Everyone knows what happens on the Costa da Morte, but no one lifts a finger to change things. Everyone tells the truth, but what is the truth, if the truth can also be used to deceive?
"There, where the sea relentlessly lashes the land and devours it, David Lema builds a vibrant story of love, death, delinquency and secrets that are the underside of an existence as battered as it is remarkable" — Antonio Lucas, poet and journalist
