Purasangre / Purity
The long-awaited new novel by Noelia Lorenzo Pino, one of euskalnoir’s most widely read writers, with the return of the readers’ favourite pair of erzainas: Lur de las Heras and Maddi Blasco.
I am writing from Irún. Last night I saw the girl in the red coat. Please find her. She is in danger.
A mysterious message sent to the Ertzaintza and a sudden disappearance in the border town of Irún bring together inspector officer Lur de la Heras and officer Maddi Blasco in an enigmatic and disturbing case. The missing person is Sua, a girl who is familiar to Lur but whom she has not seen for years. Through the reconstruction of the days leading up to her disappearance, Lur and Maddi are drawn into the young woman’s hidden world, a web of toxic relationships, fear, depression and addictions. The two women must not only discover what has happened to Sua, but also try to ensure that this descent into the darkest side of the human being does not affect their own personal lives. Do we really know the people around us? And ourselves? What would we be capable of doing in an extreme situation?
