This bold novel tells the story of the Verderas, a powerful family in Mallorca, former fascists who made their fortune in the shoe business.
Set in the present, it centers on a Mallorcan writer who lives in Barcelona and was a childhood friend of the family’s youngest son, Leo. One day he is hired to write the biography of Leo’s mother, who has just died––a controversial theater actress who left behind a series of diaries about her life.
Little by little, the writer will discover that these books reveal a very dark secret that could bring down the Verdera empire, though they are ready to prevent that at any cost.
A literary thriller with a death-defying rhythm
