Serafin's worldly superintendent Bernal of the Madrid police gladly obeys orders to beef up security in Las Palmas in the Canary Islands before a visit there by the president of Spain. Leaving his thorny wife, Bernal joins his lover Consuelo Lozano on the island where she awaits the imminent birth of their baby. But pitiless revolutionaries, who have already killed to prevent interference with their plot against the president, spoil the couple's rendezvous. Grabbing Consuelo, the gangsters keep her hidden while their devilishly ingenious instruments of destruction await the moment of detonation. Bernal grapples with the worst criminals of his career in this taut, terrifying mystery, and the reader feels his agony as he fights to save lives, especially those of Consuelo and his unborn child.
