A monster is abducting and murdering young children. The police are either powerless to prevent his terrible crimes, or indifferent to them, since they concern only the sons and daughters of prostitutes. But Inspector Moises Corvo is determined to stop the outrages, and punish their perpetrator. His inquiries take him on a tour of the Catalan capital, through slums, high-class brothels and casinos, and ends in a stomach-turning revelation.
