about this item

El reconocido actor Pablo Rivero da el salto a la literatura con una ópera prima perturbadora, hipnótica y genuina.

La madrugada del 9 de abril de 1994 una familia es asesinada mientras duerme. El crimen conmociona a la sociedad española por la brutalidad de los hechos y porque es cometido a sangre fría por uno de sus miembros. Estos son sus últimos siete días de vida.

Tras una fuerte discusión, el padre abandona la casa familiar. Laura, la madre, arrepentida de haber sacado a la luz los secretos que con tanto esmero se esforzaban en esconder, tendrá que lidiar con los dos hijos que nunca quiso mientras encuentra la manera de hacerle volver. Raúl, el hijo mayor, obsesionado con el cine de terror, intenta huir de sus oscuras tentaciones a ritmo de canciones de Nirvana. Mientras que Mario, el pequeño, encuentra en la historia que le contó su hermano sobre un hombre que espera cada noche frente a su ventana, las claves para entender la ausencia paterna.

Pero, ¿qué tiene que ver ese hombre con el crimen que ocurrirá tan sólo siete días después? ¿Y con la desaparición del joven Jonathan García, acaecida hace un año en el mismo barrio?

Siete días en que cualquiera puede ser víctima o verdugo y en los que el miedo desaparecerá para siempre...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Renowned actor Pablo Rivero jumps into literature with a debut work that is unsettling, hypnotic, and genuine.

At dawn on April 9, 1994, a family is murdered in their sleep. The crime shakes Spanish society with the brutality of the event and because it is committed in cold blood by one of its members. These are the last seven days of their lives.

After an intense argument, the father leaves the family home. Laura, the mother, regretful for having brought to light the secrets that had been so painstakingly hidden, will have to deal with the two children she never wanted while finding a way to get him to return. Raúl, the older son, obsessed with horror movies, tries to flee from his dark temptations to the rhythm of Nirvana songs. Meanwhile, Mario, the younger one, finds in the story his brother told him about a man who waits in front of his window each night, the key to understanding his father’s absence.

But what does that man have to do with the crime that will occur seven days later? And with the disappearance of young Jonathan García one year ago in the same neighborhood?
