"Shooting at someone means taking away what they have lived and what they have left to live, but shooting at a girl means that anyone can be shot."

Summer 2019 on the south-side of Madrid. The neighborhood streets are accustomed to mangled bodies, to the violence of prostitution and drugs, and even to the fights that cause breathlessness. But this time it's different. Shot at point-blank, the dreams and hopes of Carla, a fourteen-year-old girl, have disappeared forever. A team from the Judicial Police and Carla's family pose themselves the same question: why in a place where everyone is guilty of something has the only innocent person been killed? However, both parties will resort to very different methods to find an answer and, finally, the murderer. José Manuel del Río captures his experience as a criminal lawyer in a thriller that shows us that, sometimes, the victims can be as big a mystery as the executioners. The secrets of the past resurface in the present in this novel full of unforgettable characters whom the reader may be able to save, but not the city. Here, Madrid is unsparing.  

"José Manuel del Río has a bearing on this thriller, set in the streets of Madrid, in that he has the unusual ability of focusing on the victims, their secrets and the enigmas of a shattered future." Carlos Zanon, La Vanguardia
