DI Leon Prado with translators, American videographer Amanda Salisbury, and ex-British soldier Phillip Armitage, continue their hunt for an elusive criminal mastermind and investigate an intriguing new case in the world of Flamenco. Salome Mendosa was adopted as a baby and knows nothing of her roots. Her idyllic life as one of Spain’s top Flamenco dancers is turned upside down when she is invited to a lawyer’s office in the ancient town of Vélez-Málaga to receive information concerning her birth family. Desperate but nervous to learn of her heritage, she begs Amanda Salisbury, her former college roommate, to accompany her. Salome’s ancestors were not as angelic as she’d wished for. A poisonous legend concerning her late grandfather leads them on a dangerous journey back to the horrors of the Spanish Civil War, pits them against the local gypsy community, and seriously strains their relationship.
