Publisher's Summary

How Do You Unmask a Killer Who's Spent Years Preparing to Hunt You Down?

Kraken is back for the second installment in the internationally best-selling White City Trilogy, this time investigating a series of ritualistic murders, only to find that the key to uncovering the killer may be found in his own past.

A pregnant woman has been murdered in a brutal, ritualistic way: burned, hung, and then placed upside down in a Bronze Age cauldron. When Unai “Kraken” Lopez de Ayala discovers the victim is his first love, Ana Belén Liaño, memories of their time together come flooding back, and with them reminders of a dark secret long buried. Then the killer strikes again, enacting the same ritual against a second expectant parent. Kraken knows he must confront his past in order to unmask this fiend. And there’s no time to waste, because Deputy Superintendent Díaz de Salvatierra has just found out she's carrying a child. And the father could very well be Kraken himself....

Critic Reviews

"[A] strong sequel to Silence of the White City.... Sáenz smoothly blends the police work with a close look at the psychologies of those involved. Readers who like crime fiction with a focus on matters of the heart will be well satisfied." (Publishers Weekly)

“[A] large, boldly painted canvas.... Dark and juicy, the middle entry in Sáenz’s epic trilogy immerses readers in a vibrant, dangerous city.” (Kirkus Reviews

Great second book in the series

This picks up straight after the first book and picks up pace and intrigue quickly. The ambience, characters, community and culture of the setting of northern Spain which I loved in the first book all come through again. Another page turner with intelligent well portrayed characters which have depth and you grow to care about. Looking forward to the next book to be translated
