After a series of uprisings and riots, Madrid is no longer a safe city. Families like that of Ciro lock themselves in, and count the minutes before nightfall, when a bizarre silent crowd takes the streets. Ciro must choose between fleeing with his family or stay and fight. This novel takes us into our collective fears with vibrant steps, and takes the apocalyptic genre to a whole new level.
