A literary thriller which will delight the readers of Joel Dicker or Pierre Lemaitre. A novel which breaks all limits of suspense: only a writer as talented as Álvaro Arbina could fascinate us with such a superb thriller.

Ten dead bodies have appeared in a state-of-the-art house situated in one of the coldest, most inhospitable places in the world. Ten persons from ten different spots on the planet with no apparent connection among them. Nobody knows how they have got there. Nobody knows who has killed them. A literary thriller which will delight the readers of Joel Dicker or Pierre Lemaitre: its stunning literary quality and psychological depth of its characters show us the life of the victims of the most brutal murder that the Basque detective Emeli Urquiza has ever come across. Together with her colleague, Francis Thurmond, she will find out that the victims stayed together for fourteen days in that atypical house. And that they had come there after receiving a mysterious invitation from their own children. What secrets do they hide? What sinister mind can have planned such a crime? Emeli will have to resolve the two mysteries and at the same time confront her own problems. A splendidly devised plot, full of unexpected twists and turns will stretch the readers’ imagination to the least expected limits.
