The strange, ritualistic murders that rocked Vitoria, Spain, ended twenty years ago, when brilliant archaeologist Tasio Ortiz de Zárate was arrested by his twin brother, Ignacio. Now he's about to be released from jail, and the slaughter has started again. Can Inspector Unai López de Ayal, aka "The Kraken," stop the killing? The first part of Saenz's White City trilogy, an instant bestseller in Spain, is a mystery lover's mystery, combining hard-boiled characters with an entire fish market's worth of delicious red herrings. The medieval city of Vitoria is the perfect Gothic stage upon which a fascinating puzzler involving Basque legend and modern psychopathy plays out. Don't miss it!
