The book opens with an apparent murder-suicide in a wealthy suburb of Seville. His wife is upstairs in the bedroom, suffocated with a pillow, while their young son is conveniently spending the night across the street with neighbors. When Chief Investigator Javier Falcon and his team examine the crime scene, however, many details of the death seem suspicious. Murders or not, as the days go by, these deaths trigger a series of suicides among the rich and influential. A well-known artist whose son is at the center of a kidnapping case and a high-ranking policeman take their own lives. Falcon, having so recently experienced the despair chronicled in BLIND MAN, identifies with these tortured souls and relentlessly pursues the truth that binds these people. As the team digs deeper into the lives of the dead they uncover an ugly knot of interconnected crime and corruption that reaches into the power structures of Seville, Langley, and Moscow.
