Overview



Lieutenant Felipe Manley, of the National Intelligence Center, has just discovered that the Meteosat satellite is in danger. Unless measures are taken to prevent it, the Cuencasat satellite will self-destruct in four days, irreparably damaging the European satellite. Ignorant of all of this, Elvira Ballesteros, an unemployed school teacher, has just earned her private investigator’s license. With her son Felix, she’s about to take on her first case: the disappearance of a saluki. The mother-and-son team has little clue, though, that the routine case may hide the keys to resolving an international crisis. What possible connection could there be between a missing dog and the threat to the Meteosat satellite? This humorous detective story is also a gripping homage to the noir genre and spy novels.

El teniente Felipe Manley, del Centro Nacional de Inteligencia, acaba de descubrir que el Meteosat está en peligro. Si nada lo impide, dentro de tan solo cuatro días otro satélite, el Cuencasat, se autodestruirá y dañará irremediablemente el satélite europeo. Ajena a todo esto, Elvira Ballesteros, una maestra en paro que acaba de sacarse el diploma de detective privada se enfrenta, con la ayuda de su hijo Félix, a su primer caso: la desaparición de un galgo persa. Poco sospechan madre e hijo que tras ese encargo aparentemente sencillo se ocultan las claves para resolver un conflicto internacional. ¿Qué descabellada relación podría tener un perro desaparecido con el peligro que acecha al Meteosat? 13 perros es mucho más que una hilarante comedia de detectives; es también un brillante homenaje al cine negro y a las novelas de espías.
