Pages: 340

Alicia Giménez Bartlett gives Petra Delicado a break and begins a new police saga featuring an irresistible pair of investigative sisters.

The day before she has to testify in a corruption trial, the president of the Valencian Community is found dead in a hotel room, apparently due to a heart attack. The authorities fear a scandal if her death is discovered to be not as natural as it seems. So, they decide to put the case in the most inexperienced hands imaginable: those of two women, two police inspectors fresh out of the academy and with no real experience. 

Not only are Berta and Marta Miralles novice detectives but they are also sisters and they quarrel constantly. However, contrary to what is expected of them, they discover that the president has indeed been murdered and that they cannot trust anyone except each other if they want to get to the bottom of the matter.
