A HISTORICAL BREAKOUT NARRATED AT THRILLER PACE
May 22, 1938. Thousands of men remain imprisoned inside the San Cristobal prison. Behind its walls, the Civil War mercilessly destroys the life of a country... However, on that Sunday, the feast of Saint Rita, the patron saint of the impossible causes, something is on the verge of happening: a massive breakout throws open a window of hope.
A NOVEL TO REMINISCE
This novel begins a mere two years earlier, in 1936, when the war separates two young people in love. He, like most prisoners, is locked up for political reasons; she, on the other hand, must remain in the village, witness to a war that grows and grows all around her. While she does everything possible to see him again, a secret kept for too long comes to light and he will decide to listen carefully to the dangerous rumors that run through the corridors of San Cristobal. It is then that the countdown begins for a frantic escape that leaves only two possibilities for the future: freedom or the crystal graveyard.
