Summary This noir graphic novel, which stars a pregnant radio scriptwriter, won Spain's 2017 National Comic Award.
"Barcelona, 1943. As a scriptwriter for a popular radio advice column, Laia is embroiled in the romantic entanglements of others. Each day, letters flood in from troubled wives and girlfriends recounting their partner's abuses, and Laia tries her best to counsel them. In contrast, her own life seems perfectly ordered, with a devoted husband and a baby on the way. But when the city is terrorized by a vengeful killer, who leaves behind cryptic messages in blood alongside the mutilated bodies of married men -- while at the same time, Laia's husband goes missing -- her world begins to come apart. Desperate to find her husband, she turns to Mauricio, a private eye practiced in the art of hypnosis. During the course of his investigations, Mauricio soon suspects that there may be more to this unassuming young woman than meets the eye."--Page [4] of cover.
