Someone is watching her, breathing next to her, and she realizes that she is going to die.

Nobody knows who The Dame is, only that she paints. Nobody knows whether she is young or old, whether, she is a man or a woman or a group of people.  Of The Dame has only been heard that she uses her left hand, that she executes her works as if piercing the canvas. Except for those who buy the paintings, no one has seen what she hides under the brown paper with which she wraps them.

With each auction, the work increases in value and the mystery of her identity grows; but when Lucas Cúe, the popular sportsman, is brutally murdered, Inspector Valtierra must find a link between the crime and the most recent painting by the mysterious painter that appears and he must discover who hides behind the pseudonym.

Santander, Madrid, London, Paris. An amalgam of horror and beauty, a dizzying and dark plot that plunges us into the world of art and death, into the hidden shadows that run our lives.
