Verónica Rosenthal has retreated to a cousin’s remote cottage in the province of Tucumán, to recuperate from the traumatic events in The Fragility of Bodies.

After a party they attend together, Verónica travels on alone but days later discovers that the women have been murdered. Suspicion falls on a local Umbanda priest, but Verónica starts to uncover a web of corruption, abuse and femicide in which government, wealthy landowners and a high-ranking official from Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ are all implicated. Verónica’s investigation, with its unforeseen political dimensions, has alarmed new enemies who will try to stop her at all cost.
