A book that talks about those female mouths and voices that fall silent on a closed road.
Summary

 

In Santiago at the end of 2006, when the criminalization of femicide in Chile did not yet exist, Homicide Brigade detective Amparo Leiva, at the height of her career as a police officer, had to face the investigation for murder of a woman at the hands of her lover. That crime scene will open old doors from her past and bring an old case that marked her beginnings as a detective. On the verge of an important destination to another city and involved in an administrative summary, admired by her police procedures and, at the same time, questioned by her peers, Leiva will be entangled in a threatening plot which only her memories will manage to bring her back to the light.
