Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in a neat and direct style, this novel hooks the reader in with its examination of the Bilbao of the late 19th and early 20th centuries under the guise of a detective story. Alfredo Maldonado, a well-known photographer in industrial Bilbao in 1917, is immersed in an investigation of the brutal murder of the daughter of one of the richest families in the city. Maldonado, a disenchanted man with a fondness for the morbid, dissects a society indifferent to the tragedy of World War I with an acidic humor.

 

Escrita de manera pulcra y directa, esta novela engancha al lector con su examen del Bilbao de finales de los siglos XIX y XX bajo el pretexto de una historia policíaca. Alfredo Maldonado, un reputado fotógrafo en el Bilbao industrial de 1917, se ve inmerso en una investigación sobre el brutal asesinato de la hija de una de las familias más ricas de la ciudad. Maldonado, un hombre desencantado y con una afición oscura, diseccionará con su humor ácido una sociedad indiferente a la tragedia de la Primera Guerra Mundial.
