A crime novel set in Cádiz with various narrative threads that weave a web you’ll find impossible to escape.   Unfortunate events force irreverent inspector Manuel Bianquetti to accept a forced transfer to the Cádiz Police Station, which seems sure to be a quiet post until the corpse of a sixteen-year-old girl is found. Her violent death brings up memories of a past he is unable to shake. Despite the opposition of his superior officers, Inspector Bianquetti sets off on a solitary crusade to catch the murderer, following the trail of clues and evidence that may only be figments of his imagination.
