Salgado is a transplanted Argentine living in Barcelona. While working on human
trafficking case, Salgado’s violent temper got the best of him and he beat a
suspect within an inch of his life. Ordered on probation, he fled to Argentina
to cool off for a few months.
Now he’s back in
Barcelona and is eager for another big case. But his boss has other plans. He
assigns Salgado to a routine accidental death: a college student fell from a
balcony in one of Barcelona’s ritzier neighborhoods. As Salgado begins to piece
together the life and world of the victim, he realizes that his death was not
all that simple: His teenage friends are either overly paranoid or deceptively
calm, and drugs might be involved. Hector begins to follow a trail that will
lead him deep into the underbelly of Barcelona’s high society where he’ll come
face-to-face with dangerous criminals, long-buried secrets, and, of course, his
own past. But Hector thrives on pressure, and he lives for this kind of case: dark, violent, and seemingly unsolvable.
