THE BAZTAN TRILOGY
When the naked body of a teenage girl is found on a riverbank in Basque Country, Spain, homicide inspector Amaia Salazar must return to the hometown she always sought to escape. A dark secret from Amaia’s past plagues her with nightmares, and as her investigation deepens, the old pagan beliefs of the community threaten to derail her astute detective work. This is only the start of a fascinating story in which the legends of the North get intertwined with horrifying crimes.
The three novels conforming the trilogy are The Invisible Guardian, The Legacy of the Bones and Offering to the Storm.
«Myth and reality blend and blur in this sophisticated and razor-sharp thriller.» Steve Berry
THE NORTH FACE OF THE HEART
In August 2005, long before the crimes that shook the Baztan valley occurred, a young twenty-five-year-old Amaia Salazar, detective inspector of the Foral Police in Navarra, participates in an exchange programme for Europol police officers at the FBI Academy in the United States, taught by Aloisius Dupree, the head of the research unit. One of the tests consists of studying the real-life case of a serial killer, whom they call “the composer”, who always strikes during great natural disasters attacking entire families and leaving an almost liturgical scene behind. Amaia will unexpectedly become part of the research team, which will take them to New Orleans, on the eve of the worst hurricane in their history, to try to get ahead of the killer…
But a call from her aunt Engrasi in Elizondo will awaken in Amaia old ghosts from her childhood that can change everything, exposing herself, once again, to the north face of the heart.
