Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A man answers the knocking at his door during a stormy night and, unsuspecting, lets uncertainty and truth into his home. Amparo Dvila arrives as ghosts do, without asking permission. She brings with her a woman whom he loved years ago, as well as the virus of disappearance, which turns the characters into guests among the fog. The man, a doctor dedicated to the care of the terminally ill, can hardly manage to see that his trajectory has fused with that of a suicidal patient whose story has already been forgotten, and with that of several women who seem to know more about him than he knows himself. A rediscovered manuscript, a clinical story with a terrible ending, indicates the downward spiral that, like a tornado, narrows towards a final and terrible truth.
