Summary

SIN LÍMITES

Vuelve Carmen Mola, el último fenómeno de la novela negra española (150.000 lectores) y su autora más audaz y enigmática, con una entrega aún más revulsiva, violenta y sorprendente.

«Nadie regresa del infierno indemne.»

Es la noche del fin de año chino, empieza el año del cerdo. Chesca, al mando de la Brigada de Análisis de Casos desde hace un año, ha quedado con Ángel Zárate, pero en el último momento este le da plantón. Aun así, ella sale a divertirse, conoce a un hombre y pasa la noche con él. A la mañana siguiente, tres hombres rodean su cama, a la espera de unirse al festín. Y un repulsivo olor a cerdo impregna la estancia.

Después de un día entero sin dar señales, los compañeros de la BAC empiezan a buscar a su compañera. Cuentan con una ayuda inestimable: Elena Blanco, que aunque dejó la policía tras la debacle que supuso el caso de la Red Púrpura, no puede dar la espalda a una amiga. Pronto se darán cuenta de que tras la desaparición de Chesca se esconden secretos inconfesables.
Tras el abrumador éxito de La novia gitana y La Red Púrpura, Carmen Mola regresa en esta tercera entrega de la serie protagonizada por la inspectora Elena Blanco con nuevos e impactantes personajes, y una historia «no apta para lectores sensibles».

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The latest phenom of Spanish crime novels returns with an even more revolting, violent, and surprising delivery. Carmen Mola is crime literature’s boldest and most enigmatic author.
 
“No one returns from hell unscathed.”
 
It is the eve of Chinese year, and the year of the pig is about to begin. Chesca, who has been in charge of the Case Analysis Brigade for a year, has a date with Angel Zarate, but at the last minute, he stands her up. Still, she goes out for a fun night around town, and soon meets a man and spends the night with him. The next morning she wakes up to three men around her bed, waiting to join in the fun. And a repulsive pig smell permeates the room.
 
After a whole day without any sign of her, her Brigade colleagues start looking for their partner. And they have invaluable help: Elena Blanco, who had left the police force after the debacle that was the Purple Network case, cannot turn her back on a friend. They will soon realize that behind Chesca's disappearance there are many hidden unspeakable secrets.
 
After the overwhelming success of La novia gitana / The Gypsy Bride and La Red Púrpura / The Purple Network, Carmen Mola returns in this third installment of the series starring Inspector Elena Blanco with new and impressive characters, and a story "not suitable for sensitive readers".
