A fascinating police intrigue that pounds at your head and aims for your heart.
Madrid, 1981. Two police inspectors investigate the hitand-run death of a naked young woman whose autopsy reveals terrible wounds suffered before her death. Not long afterward, two girls of a similar age disappear. All three were last seen in late-night bars. This is the beginning of a gripping criminal intrigue that will cover two decades, weaving together the psychology of the characters with mastery. Madrid at the end of the seventies, where the ferocious methods of Francoism are still alive, contrasts with a new but stable democracy exposed to the dangers of a globalized world.
A novel whose rhythm doesn’t allow readers to catch their breath, with suspense, violence, and an epic finale that is as surprising as it is devastating. A novel that reflects on the complexity of human beings, their darkest zones, and the all-powerful strength of love.
