Mario Vega is seven years old and his life is about to change forever. Across the street in an exclusive suburb of Seville his father lies dead on the kitchen floor and his mother has been suffocated under her own pillow. It appears to be a suicide pact, but Inspector Jefe Javier Falcon has his doubts when he finds an enigmatic note crushed in the dead man's hand. In the brutal summer heat Falcon starts to dismantle the obscure life of Rafael Vega only to receive threats from the Russian mafia who have begun operating in the city. His investigation into Vega's neighbors uncovers a creative American couple with a destructive past and the misery of a famous actor whose only son is in prison for an appalling crime. Within days two further suicides follow - one of them a senior policeman - and a forest fire rages through the hills above Seville obliterating all in its path. Falcon must now sweat out the truth, which will reveal that everything is connected and there is one more secret in the black heart of Vega's life.
