In the first chapter: ‘A thirst for memories’
It all begins one dark, moonless night at the Campoamargo (Almeria) greenhouses. A young girl cries for help; it is Ainhoa. When she tries to run, she suddenly appears to get sucked into the plastic covering. And disappears.
Amancio, a neighbor in the vicinity of the greenhouses at the time, notifies the Civil Guard, telling them he has seen a girl running and calling for help. But they cannot find anyone. The following morning when the sprinklers are turned on at the greenhouses, instead of water coming out, there is blood.
The head of a girl that appears to be Ainhoa is found nearby in a well. Someone has killed Ainhoa; several people have a motive, but very few have an alibi. Everyone is suspect, but only one is guilty.
