ALREVÉS,  2019, 181 p. FICTION, Black Novel, spanish

The pain of a child’s death is unmentionable and manifests itself in very different ways. So do the loneliness, emptiness, fear, guilt, and anger that come with knowing that life has been taken away. Overnight, Soledad becomes the dead mother of a dead child. Inspector Romero, in charge of investigating the case, will live his own ordeal trying to discover the truth. That of the girl’s death and another that only concerns him. Soledad narrates this double search from the constant duplicity of voices. It is also a reminder that sometimes the truth does not liberate, but rather calcines everything around it.
