Violeta comes into the world on a stormy day in 1920, the first girl in a family with five boisterous sons. From the start, her life is marked by extraordinary events, for the ripples of the Great War are still being felt, even as the Spanish flu arrives on the shores of her South American homeland almost at the moment of her birth. Through her father’s prescience, the family will come through that crisis unscathed, only to face a new one as the Great Depression transforms the genteel city life she has known. Her family loses everything and is forced to retreat to a wild and beautiful but remote part of the country. There, she will come of age, and her first suitor will come calling. She tells her story in the form of a letter to someone she loves above all others, recounting times of devastating heartbreak and passionate affairs, poverty and wealth, terrible loss and immense joy. Her life is shaped by some of the most important events of history: the fight for women’s rights, the rise and fall of tyrants, and ultimately not one, but two pandemics.

A few years later, Lavrentiy Beria, the bloodthirsty head of the Bolshevik police, will present that plan to Stalin, who will appropriate the operation and turn it into a personal and extremely secret mission, warning the man charged with carrying it out that it must not escape his strict control. It will be the Kazan Operation. Now in our present, an insatiable, reckless KGB agent comes to power in Moscow, and relaunches the Kazan Operation to sabotage the West and recover Russia’s status as a superpower.

The President of the Generalitat Valenciana, Vita Castellá, is found dead in a luxurious hotel room in Madrid. Such a compromising situation demands that the possibility of murder gets officially ruled out and the investigations cease, and so, those in the ruling party, which the victim had been a member of, have activated every resource and phoned everyone in the highest spheres that might help them buy some time. Meanwhile, the Chief of Police of the Comunitat Valenciana decides to help the Minister of Interior and the National Police Director, Juan Quesada Montilla, in their mission: distract the authorities. For such a purpose, they leave the case in the hands of two new and peculiar inspectors, sisters Berta and Marta Miralles. Radically different from each other, together they will face a shady world of hidden agendas.
George March’s latest novel is a smash. No one could be prouder than his dutiful wife, Mrs. March, who revels in his accolades. A careful creature of routine and decorum, she lives a precariously controlled existence on the Upper East Side until one morning, when the shopkeeper of her favorite patisserie suggests that her husband’s latest protagonist―a detestable character named Johanna―is based on Mrs. March herself. Clutching her ostrich leather pocketbook and mint-colored gloves, she flees the shop. What could have merited this humiliation? That one casual remark robs Mrs. March of the belief that she knew everything about her husband―and herself―thus sending her on an increasingly paranoid journey that begins within the pages of a book. While snooping in George’s office, Mrs. March finds a newspaper clipping about a missing woman. Did George have anything to do with her disappearance? He’s been going on a lot of “hunting trips” up north with his editor lately, leaving Mrs. March all alone at night with her tormented thoughts, and the cockroaches that have suddenly started to appear, and strange breathing noises . . . As she begins to decode her husband’s secrets, her deafening anxiety and fierce determination threaten everyone in her wake―including her stoic housekeeper, Martha, and her unobtrusive son, Jonathan, whom she loves so profoundly, when she remembers to love him at all.
