El mal y el tiempo

A crime novel about corruption.
The discovery of a cadaver sparks a police investigation that unravels an intriguing tale about friendship, love, and the role of art in the contemporary world, as well as privilege, power, and corruption. The uncertainties soon start to multiply but all of them seem to point to one question: Who is the enigmatic woman whose portrait appears in the home of the murdered man?
Narrated in two time periods (the start of the 1990s and in 2012), El mal y el tiempo is the new book from the author of Los jugadores, a dark mystery novel that portrays twenty years of Spanish society in which the silences are heavier than answers.
