The Invisible Guardian

Original title: El guardián invisible
Author: Dolores Redondo

When the naked body of a teenage girl is found on the banks of the River Baztán, it is quickly linked to a similar murder one month before. Soon, rumours are flying in the nearby village of Elizondo. Is this the work of a ritualistic killer or is it the basajaun, the ‘invisible guardian’ of Basque mythology?

Inspector Amaia Salazar leads the investigation, taking her back to the heart of the Basque country where she was born, and where she hoped never to return. Shrouded in mist and surrounded by impenetrable forests, it is a place of unresolved conflicts and a terrible secret from Amaia’s childhood that will come back to haunt her.

Faced with the superstitions of the village, Amaia must fight the demons of her past to confront the reality of a serial killer on the loose. But as she is drawn deeper into the investigation, she feels the presence of something darker lurking in the shadows…

«Utterly compelling» Publishing Perspectives

«A novel about the fear of returning to fear.» La Vanguardia

«It reminds us of Johan Theorin and Maurizio de Giovanni, of the short stories by Tana French or of Val McDermid. Like all of them, The Invisible Guardian is a more sophisticated kind of book, more elaborated than the conventional crime novel.» El Periódico

«I was very surprized by it, I really loved it. I strongly recommend it.» María Dueñas, author of The Time in Between

«It’s the basajaun, the other main character, the mysterious element and the original ‘soul’ of the book : man vs the bestiality of crime, ancestral legends vs modern investigation techniques, family traumas vs dark beliefs.» L’Express

«Dolores Redondo has broken the traditional mould of the publishing industry.» ABC

«A landscape thriller. And what a landscape it is!» Page des Libraires
