El segundo nombre ( visu )
6 editions published in 2003 in Spanish and French and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Una mañana, Theodore Logan, respetado y exitoso empresario, conduce su coche hasta un apartado bosque donde inexplicablemente pone fin a su vida. Daniella Logan, su hija de veinticinco años, comienza a partir de entonces a reconstruir los últimos días de la vida de su padre, a la búsqueda de una respuesta, de una pista, de algo que le permita comprender porqué. La búsqueda de Daniella le acerca a la figura de un hombre distinto al que ella conoció; se esfuma el rastro de padre amante, de hombre sacrificado y bueno que dedicó su vida a hacer feliz a su hija, y en su lugar aparece ante la nueva mirada de su hija un hombre despiadado, cruel y peligroso. Religión, intriga y muerte se entrelazan en esta historia de una mujer que pierde la inocencia, que despierta al mundo oscuro y podrido que la rodea y que descubre que bajo la apacible apariencia de su pequeña comunidad hay una maraña de mentiras y misterios que la rodean hasta asfixiarla y empujarla al borde de la locura
