ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The new dame of Spanish mystery who-done-it novels.
A crime of passion in Santiago de Compostela.

Six suspects dine in the garden of a luxurious house on the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela while fifteen years old Xiana Alen's body lies on her bedroom floor in a pool of blood, as if it were an art installation: her parents, her Aunt Lia Somoza -a world renowned painter-, a couple, and the Somoza sisters' old aunt.

All signs of guilt point to Lia, but after a few days she tries to commit suicide and is admitted to a hospital. Inspector Santi Abad, along with Ana Barroso's help -a young, strong, and temperamental police officer with whom he will have an intense and conflicting relationship-, must uncover the Alen Somoza family's deepest secrets, even though they are one of the most powerful and wealthiest families of Galician high society.

An exceptionally intriguing plot, in which nothing is what it seems and no one is who they claim to be, confirms Arantza Portabales as the new dame of Spanish crime novels.
