The novel that begins the trilogy featuring Inspector Araceli Lavila

In a flush on the outskirts of Valencia appears the body of an unidentified young woman with the phalanges of her fingers cut off and obvious signs of rape.
When Inspector Araceli Lavila begins the investigation, she discovers that beneath that death is hidden a woman who seems to have a thousand names, a mother whose daughter was stolen at birth and a young prostitute who seeks to survive. To discover those responsible for the crime, the inspector must reconstruct a victim’s past that seems impossible to identify.
After Els ossos soburats (The Buried Bones), winner of the III Agustí Vehí-Vila de Tiana Memorial Prize, Silvestre Vilaplana returns to Crims.cat with Women without Name, a thriller novel starring women against the backdrop of baby theft, sexist violence, sex and abuse of power.
