Montsant, 2019. The appearance of the corpse of Jaume Folch, patriarch of a wine dynasty in the vicinity of Escaladei, brings the authorities to the normally peaceful area. The victim’s throat had been slit, and a symbol engraved with a knife on his chest. The notoriety of the Folch name and the cruelty of the murder demand a quick and discreet investigation, which is assigned to the inspector of the Mossos d’Esquadra (local police) Víctor Sanz Gimeno.
Sagi, the nickname by which everyone knows the inspector, along with the young journalist who discovers the body and who always seems to be one step ahead, will not only uncover the rivalries of the Folch family, but also a legend about a secret brotherhood dating back to the fifteenth century.
A novel with all the ingredients to entertain, to make known an area of Catalonia located in Morera de Montsant, in the region of El Priorat. Founded in the 12th century, Escaladei is considered the first Carthusian monastery in the Iberian Peninsula. Ideal for readers to visit it, after a thrilling reading, and then taste its famous wines.
Let’s give opportunities to new voices that deserve it, and that also uncover a place full of secrets.
