Novel , 2018
A return to the crime genre by Carme Riera, winner of Spain’s National Literature Prize and member of the Royal Spanish Academy
Private detective Helena Martínez is charged with investigating the disappearance of Catalan businessman Robert Solivellas. The year is 2004, and easy money and corruption are all the rage in Spain. But under this dark sea runs an even more sinister river: the total degradation of people shielded by economic and political power, who believe they can act with total impunity.
After Natura quasi morta (Almost Still Life), Carme Riera is back with another crime novel. This thriller combines all the key elements of the genre with the author’s characteristic mastery, irony and social criticism.
