Dolores Redondo, trans. from the Spanish by Michael Meigs. AmazonCrossing, $24.95 (576p) ISBN 978-1-5039-0254-1

When popular Madrid-based author Manuel Ortigosa, the hero of this powerful mystery from Spanish author Redondo (The Invisible Guardian), finds out that his spouse, Álvaro Muñiz de Dávila, has been killed in a traffic accident in Galicia, he travels to northwestern Spain to get answers. But he soon realizes that the man he loved for 15 years harbored more than a few secrets: first and foremost, that he was a wealthy marquis who was the head of one of Spain’s most distinguished families. After meeting with Álvaro’s tight-lipped family members, Manuel reconsiders his husband’s alleged accidental death. With the help of a recently retired police detective and one of Álvaro’s childhood friends, Manuel begins examining the family’s guarded history—and uncovers unspeakable darkness. With the beautiful Galician countryside as backdrop, Redondo weaves an impressively intricate story line filled with more than a few bombshell plot twists. This door stopper of a novel will leave readers utterly satisfied. Agent: Anna Soler-Pont, Pontas Agency (Spain). (Sept.)
