Overview

A crime committed in postwar Spain produces consequences for three generations of the Alcalá family and for those they’ve encountered across a span of 40 years. Conspiracy, kidnapping, murder, sexist violence, and torture are some of the ingredients in this exciting novel in which the characters from two parallel storylines—one in Extremadura in 1941 and the other in Barcelona in 1981—slowly begin to intersect, and readers are allowed into the psyche of each of them. The end result is a magnificent novel full of intrigue and investigations, love and hate, ambition and pain, and, above all, guilt—a scourge transmitted generation to generation.

Un crimen cometido durante la posguerra española produce consecuencias en tres generaciones de la familia Alcalá y en aquellos que se han cruzado en sus vidas durante 40 años. Complots, secuestros, asesinatos, violencia machista y torturas son algunos de los ingredientes de esta emocionante novela en la cual poco a poco se van entrelazando los personajes de dos tramas paralelas—una en Extremadura en el año 1941 y la otra en Barcelona en 1981—permitiéndoles a los lectores entrar en la psicología de cada uno de ellos. El resultado es una magnífica novela de intriga e investigación, de amor y odio, de ambición y dolor y, sobre todo, de culpa—una tacha que se transmite de generación en generación.
