Synopsis: Mina San Telmo and the Celluloid Crypt. A Great Film History Robbery
How did the youngest murder mystery writer on earth get caught in an enigmatic Hollywood director’s net?
It all begins with Mina San Telmo’s journey to Barcelona for the shooting of The Invincibles, a highly anticipated superhero movie. Hotshot director Tony DePrada has offered her aunt Agatha—amateur actress and wannabe star—the part left vacant by his ex, the stunning Irma Vep, after an accident that almost kills her.
But Mina and her brother Rob suspect the accident could be connected with the treasure of antique films recently discovered in one of the city’s oldest movie theaters. There Enric García, the curator in charge, tries to exorcise the ghosts that seemingly haunt the basement by telling the young investigators the history of film.
