Overview

Los Ángeles, años cuarenta: en un solar se descubre el cadáver mutilado de una joven. La prensa bautiza el caso con el sugerente nombre de la «puta virgen» y, de repente, un asesinato que podría haber pasado desapercibido se convierte en el ojo de un huracán que adquiere cada vez mayores dimensiones. Dos hermanos, Tom, detective de homicidios, y Des Spellacy, sacerdote con ambiciones políticas dentro de la Iglesia, constituyen los ejes en torno a los cuales desfilan personajes comp rometidos en sobornos y tráficos de influencias, que nos llevan de los aposentos de un cardenal a un sórdido prostíbulo de suburbio; de los campos de golf donde los notables juegan sus partidas y entretejen sus redes de poder y corrupción a la humilde feligresía de una parroquia californiana; de policías de moral ambigua que bordean la ilegalidad a la atormentada vida sentimental de Tom, cuya esposa entra en delirios místicos y cuya amante tiene la molesta virtud de despertar su mala conciencia.
