This bold novel tells the story of the Verdera, a powerful family in Majorca, former fascists who made their fortune in the shoe business.
Set in the present, it centers on a Majorcan 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
