by Aro Sáinz de la Maza
Milo Malart, detective of the Catalan State Police, faces a particularly cruel and complex case.
Monday at dawn a young man shows up at the police station covered in blood from head to toe. "Everyone is dead," he whispers before fainting. Analysis of his clothes confirms that the blood belongs to at least three people. Are the police looking at yet another victim, the survivor of a massacre? But why does he remain silent when he regains consciousness? There is another possibility: that he is the murderer. However, everyone describes him as a docile boy, unable to hurt a fly. Who is Lucas Torres really?

Aro Sáinz de la Maza (1959) lives in Barcelona, a city that habitually serves as a setting for his novels. He currently combines his writing career with that of an editor and proofreader. He started the devastating series starring inspector Milo Malart with The Barcelona Murders (RBA, 2012, Destino, 2020), his first crime novel, which received a Special Mention of the RBA International Crime Novel Award. The outstanding popular reception and press reviews was reaffirmed with the publication of the novel in France (Le Bourreau De Gaudí, Actes Sud, 2014), where Malart is considered with the classics of the genre and with the works of prestigious contemporary writers, such as Jo Nesbø and Philip Kerr.
