"Salomón Rulfo, profesor de literatura en paro y gran amante de la poesía, sufre noche tras noche una inquietante y aterradora pesadilla. En sus sueños aparece una casa desconocida, personas extrañas y un triple asesinato sangriento, en el que, además, una mujer le pide ayuda desesperadamente. Por este motivo, Salomón acude a la consulta del doctor Ballesteros, un médico que le ayuda a desentrañar el misterio de los sueños y le acompaña en lo que se convertirá en un caso mucho más terrible y escalofriante que cualquier fantasía: el escenario del crimen es real y la mujer que pide socorro a gritos fue realmente asesinada. En compañía de una joven de pasado enigmático, el doctor y un ex profesor de la universidad con el que mantiene una relación compleja, Salomón de adentrará en un mundo donde las palabras y la poesía son un arma de gran poder. En ese mundo, habitan las doce damas que controlan nuestro destino desde las sombras ... o ¿son trece brujas? Con La dama número trece el autor hilvana con destreza y elegancia una fascinante historia de intriga, en la que se desafía la inteligencia y fantasía del lector. Y con esta nueva novela, José Carlos Somoza confirma una vez más su talento a la hora de urdir tramas de misterio y recrear una atmósfera de tensión con una prosa lírica y bella"--Cubierta

"Ella es la mejor, la más preparada, la única que puede atrapar al Espectador, el mayor y más brutal homicida de todos los tiempos. Ella es el cebo: ha sido entrenada para cazarlo. En un tiempo en que la tecnología ya no sirve para atrapar a los asesinos, la policía descubre un método infalible cuyas claves se pueden interpretar en el teatro de Shakespeare: cada una de las obras del artista, escritas bajo el influjo del Círculo Gnóstico de Londres, refleja la manera de manipular el deseo. Los cebos, expertos en conductas humanas, son adiestrados para utilizar ese poder creando máscaras que controlen lo que anida dentro de nosotros mismos. Cuando Diana Blanco, el mejor cebo de la policía, descubra que su hermana es el próximo objetivo del Espectador iniciará una carrera contrarreloj que la conducirá hasta la guarida del monstruo. A partir de ese momento se desencadena un trepidante juego de sospechas que llevará a la protagonista a un final inquietante y explosivo, siguiendo la estela de un paisaje desolado donde nada ni nadie son lo que parecen."--Jaquette
