Mystery & Detective

There lay Mariona. Pale, blonde, curvaceous - and dead.'

Barcelona, 1952: General Franco's fascist government is at the height of its oppressive powers, casting a black shadow of rumour, fear and violence across the city. When wealthy socialite Mariona Sobrerroca is found dead in her mansion in the exclusive Tibidabo district, the police scramble to seize control of the investigation. Ana Mart?, an eager young journalist, is surprised to be assigned this important story, shadowing Inspector Isidro Castro.

But Ana soon realises that a bundle of mysterious letters unearthed at the scene may point to a sequence of events dramatically different from the official version. She seeks the help of her cousin Beatriz, an eminent scholar, and what begins as an intriguing puzzle opens up a series of shocking revelations that implicate the regime's most influential figures. Unwittingly, the two women have placed themselves in mortal danger. As the thrilling and disturbing conspiracy unfolds, Ana's courage and Beatriz's wits will be their only weapons against the city's corrupt elite
