The gripping new psychological thriller featuring Javier Falcon, homicide detective from ‘The Silent and the Damned’ and ‘The Blind Man of Seville’.
As Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón investigates a mutilated, faceless corpse unearthed on the municipal dump, the beautiful city of Seville is rocked by a massive explosion which devastates an apartment building and a nearby kindergarten. When it’s discovered that there was a mosque in the basement everybody's terrorist fears are confirmed.
The high summer heat tightens its grip. Panic sweeps the city and the region is on red alert. More bodies are dragged from the rubble and terror invades the domestic life of flamboyant judge Calderón and the troubled mind of wealthy Consuelo.
With the media and political pressure intensifying Falcón realises that all is not as it appears. But just as he comes close to cracking the conspiracy he makes the most terrifying discovery of all, and the race is on to prevent a major catastrophe far beyond Spain’s borders.
