The body of a teenage girl shows up hanging from the Stone Crane in the bay of Santander. Her uniform leads Inspector Alonso Ceballos, a local veteran policeman, and Inspector Silvia Martín, an agent recently arrived from Palencia, to investigate the halls of the elite Peñas Viejas school. Soon the case is linked to the death of another of the school’s students on a beach in Costa Quebrada a few months earlier, even though the original investigation determined she’d committed suicide. The police will slowly resolve a mystery that brings together the mafia, bullying and dark corners of social media. Do we know what our children are doing when they look at their cellphone screens?
A gripping novel with a bravura setting starring a very peculiar tandem: Inspector Martín and the singular narrator, who is also involved in the investigation.
