An epic novel about the transformation of a city haunted by terrorism. The final book in the Bilbao trilogy, eagerly awaited by over 20,000 readers.

Alberto Cepeda returns to Bilbao in 1993 after ten years of exile. His parents, like many other migrants, had moved to the Biscay region in the 1970s, but were forced to leave with Alberto due to threats from ETA. Now, contracted by an engineering studio commissioned to construct the new Guggenheim museum, Alberto must overcome his fears to face his beloved city, till blighted by terrorism. There he falls desperately in love with his boss‘s daughter, Izarbe Segurola, who tells him about the strange case of a little girl stolen from their family during the civil war. Intrigued, Alberto decides to investigate.

An enthralling novel which takes the reader from the Bilbao of the 1970s up to the beginning of its epic transformation at the end of the 1990s with the inauguration of the Guggenheim. A breathtaking ending to Modroño‘s bestselling Bilbao trilogy.
