Businessman Emilio Noval is stabbed to death in the middle of the night in his home in Cangas de Onís. Fortunately, his daughter, Mónica, a rebellious teenager, was sleeping at her friend Llara’s house so she is safe. Laura’s father, Nelu Prado is a survivalist; someone who trains people how to be self-sufficient in the event of a possible catastrophe.

Travel Guide


The mystery of the third lake…

This is one heck of a mystery that really exists! There are two glacial lakes which make up the Covadonga lakes where the novel is set: Enol and Ercina. When the thaw occurs, a third lake appears, Bricial, which only has water at that time of year. It appears and then disappears again.

This mystery has been tied to many stories of mysteries and ghosts that continue to haunt and fascinate people.

The novel takes place in Asturias and the region around it. Most of the plot unfolds in Cangas de Onís and Villaviciosa so these are definitely the towns to explore and feel as if you are in the action as the book unfolds.
