Description

Finally coming to terms with the loss of his wife, a man is exposed to the avaricious underbelly of London's cosmopolitan society, turning his innocent search for answers into a fast-paced adventure in this thrilling narrative. Alberto is an art professor in Madrid whose wife passed away some years ago. He now only goes through the motions, inhabiting the world without actually living in it. Deciding to take action on his wife's plan to investigate the Chinese inscriptions on an antique family painting, he travels to London, where his best friend Juan, a prominent banker, introduces him to the sheens and shadows of the city's aristocracy. Alberto experiences the abominable wake left by greed, corruption, and crime--elements intrinsically attached to the prevalent materialistic surroundings--and uncovers secrets of his own. "Finalmente aceptando la perdida de su esposa, un hombre se ve expuesto a las entranas avariciosas de la sociedad cosmopolita de Londres, convirtiendo su inocente busqueda por respuestas en una aventura trepidante en esta narrativa apasionante. Alberto es un profesor de arte en Madrid cuya esposa fallecio hace unos anos. Ahora hace todo mecanicamente, habitando el mundo sin realmente vivir en el.

Alberto experimenta los resultados abominables de la avaricia, la corrupcion y la delincuencia--elementos intrinsecamente unidos al entorno materialista imperante--y revela sus propios secretos."show more
