Publisher's Summary

The second book in Dolores Redondo's atmospheric Baztan trilogy, featuring Inspector Amaia Salazar. With masterful storytelling and a detective to rival Sarah Lund, this Spanish bestselling series has taken Europe by storm.

A year after arresting Jason Medina for the rape and murder of his step-daughter, Detective Inspector Amaia Salazar has one last duty to complete before starting her maternity leave - attending Medina's trial. When the trial is suddenly called off, Amaia is appalled. But the judge had no choice. Jason Medina has committed suicide in the bathroom of the courthouse, leaving behind a cryptic note addressed to Amaia: the single word 'Tarttalo'. What message was Medina trying to send with this obscure reference to Basque mythology? To unravel the truth, Amaia must return once again to the Baztan valley, her family home and the place where she feels most vulnerable. As the investigation becomes more complicated and more personal, those closest to Amaia will be placed in mortal danger....

One of the best audiobooks I've listened to

As a lover of crime novels I found this quite perfect. An intelligent and engrossing story, beautifully read by Emma Gregory who has impeccable pronunciation of difficult names and places. Her voice is just right for a tale of savagery, soulfulness and, ultimately, family history and the fates thereof.
Let's hope Redondo writes more about Baztan after the trilogy.

Una historia interesante fruto de una primera parte también muy interesante
He decidido escuchar este libro en inglés y estoy muy contento de haber perdido la experiencia y la buena narración de la narradora
Estoy impaciente por disfrutar del tercer libro de esta trilogía en inglés
Leí este libro como recomendación de mi novia la cual ha leído la trilogía hace un año y le encanto
Mi valoración se basa fundamentalmente en el contenido de la historia que es muy interesante en la sostenibilidad del argumento y en el hilo argumental
La narradora a hecho uso de una voz extraordinaria adaptada a cada personaje en función de la necesidad
