Mina Índigo is the most sought-after medium in Barcelona. In her small mansion in the central Pasaje de Permanyer, she organises séances for wealthy ladies of high society, but in reality she is an expert investigator who uses her contacts to obtain compromising information from her clients.

In the Barcelona of 1888, on the eve of the Universal Exhibition, Mina and the new forensic pathologist, the British doctor Ellis, find themselves involved in a murder that will shock the city.

Moving between luxurious parties at the Liceu and the winding streets of the Raval, they will have to solve the crime before scandal and blood taint the streets, just as an unexpected passion arouses between them.

Alaitz Leceaga’s fascinating characters and her characteristic magnetic prose take us into an intriguing place and time in history, the seed of what was to become the twentieth century.

A historical thriller with an addictive plot and a story of an impossible love in an atmosphere of glamour and luxury. A medium and a forensic scientist on the hunt against the clock for a ruthless killer who threatens the whole city. The Two Lives of Mina Indigo is a gripping adventure woven around historical facts, set in the turbulent Barcelona of the late 19th century.
