Synopsis: An old Spanish historical mystery awakens the interest of a journalist, a retired “psychic spy” of a top secret US Air force program, and several cardinals in Rome. Its solution is linked to a Sixteenth Century nun, María Jesús of Ágreda (1602-1665), who was accused by the Spanish inquisition of travelling more than 500 times to the New Mexico territories using her power to ‘bilocate’ (to be in two places at the same time). This novel is based on a famous legend of the US Southwest, in which a strange ‘Lady in Blue’ appeared to the Native Americans, informing them of the arrival of the first Conquistadores.
La dama azul was Javier Sierra’s first novel, and now it has been revisited by the author for its new American edition, published in June 2007 by Atria Books (Simon & Schuster).
