FROM CHAPTER I
By the time they called me, a whole week had passed since the second body had been discovered. This was a setback as much of the evidence would have disappeared by now and I'd have to work with what little evidence the local police, unaccustomed to these types of crimes, would have been able to collect. Luckily I had been allocated a competent enough CSI unit and as we flew from Washington to Kansas City International Airport, we imagined, quite rightly as it turned out, that the crime scene will have been spoiled by dozens of well-meaning but clumsy Deputies.
Liz, who I already knew professionally from the only case that I'd worked on up to then, handed me a folder containing photos; the cyanotic bodies of two naked girls, abandoned in a lagoon, like the unimportant remnants of a quiet morning picnic. I was staring into the open eyes of one of the young girls, who could not have been more than twenty years old, when I was struck by her plea: "You must find who did this to me."

About the Author
Enrique Laso was just eight years old when he started writing, and when he finished his first long story, of around 50 pages, entitled "Roca". Since then, he has written around 50 novels, books of poetry and collections of short stories. He has won numerous literary competitions throughout his extensive literary career. For personal reasons, he did not write for almost ten years, until in 2005, when he revived his passion, and since then he has dedicated himself to it whole-heartedly. His most recent successes have been a self-help book entitled "El Mago", which has sold more than 15,000 copies worldwide, and the historical thriller "El Rumor de los Muertos", with more than 130,000 readers (it spent four consecutive years on the Amazon.com Bestseller list), and was the bestselling horror novel on Amazon.com in 2012, 2013 and 2014. "El Rumor de los Muertos" has been recommended by writers such as Juan Gómez-Jurado. It is now available in print, published by MR (Planeta). His most recently published novel is "El Padre Salas" ['Padre Salas', in the English translation], and is a short novel written due to popular demand by hundreds of readers who were captivated by the strength of this character from "Desde el Infierno" ['Hell Calling', in the English translation], a novel recently adapted for the Spanish cinema, and which was premiered in 2015. Available just now is 'The Blue Crimes´, Laso's first foray into the genre of detective fiction, and currently in progress are two spine-chilling, aspiring Bestseller thrillers: 'The Tesla Mystery´ and 'God´s Brain´. Laso also used many pseudonyms to publish his work, in various genres. The only one that he has revealed to date, however, is 'Henry Osal', which he uses when publishing books on self-help. Altogether, his works are now available in 14 different languages, and have sold around 500,000 copies throughout the world.
