Publisher's Summary

In a propulsive thriller by the #1 internationally bestselling author of The Baztán Trilogy, a female detective follows a psychopathic killer into the eye of a storm.

Amaia Salazar, a young detective from the north of Spain, has joined a group of trainees at the FBI Academy in Virginia. Haunted by her past and having already tracked down a predator on her own, Amaia is no typical rookie. And this is no ordinary student lecture at Quantico. FBI agent Aloisius Dupree is already well acquainted with Amaia’s skills, her intuition, and her ability to understand evil. He now needs her help in hunting an elusive serial killer dubbed “the Composer,” and in solving another case that’s been following him his whole life.

From New Jersey to Oklahoma to Texas, the Composer’s victims are entire families annihilated in the chaos of natural disasters, their bodies posed with chilling purpose amid the ruins. Dupree and Amaia follow his trail to New Orleans. The clock is ticking. It’s the eve of the worst hurricane in the city’s history. But a troubling call from Amaia’s aunt back home awakens in Amaia the ghosts from her childhood and sends her down a path as dark as that of the coming storm.

Another “can’t stop listening” audiobook

Ms Redondo and her awesome & intriguing character “Amaya” filled my imagination again. This is my 4th novel by the author that I listened to with keen intention to detail. I can visualize every scene in detail & wish I could meet Amaya and pick her brain.

I can’t wait to see what this dynamic duo does in the future!

Magnificent book, amazing performance!’

I’ve just discovered this Author, in 2 months I have listen to all her books. This book in particular is really well performance. I’m fact it is one of the best performances in audible that I listen to so far!
Only two translate errors that might help you if you are an Anglo listener: chirimiri is a soft rain and little vixen is not a fox it is little hore..
As for the history, it is better understood if you listen to baztan trilogy first. But as a separate book it can do.
Enjoy this book, it is another master pice by Dolores Redondo!!

Translation!

Two words kept coming up and really annoying me. It's GOT NOT GOTTEN! Aware latter used in spoken American English but not good English. More substitutes for the boring word can be found too - became, obtained, etc.

The past tense of SHINE is SHONE NOT SHINED.
