A compelling story that starts in Italy and winds its way through Europe, passing through Paris, London, Alsace, Switzerland, the Mediterranean islands, and then moves to Iceland where it will have its climax and epilogue.

The spaces are mainly those of the bourgeoisie and high society: chic, sophisticated, exciting and irresistible. The time in which the story takes place is the present day.
The main protagonists are two women Clara and Emma: both capture the reader’s attention, first Clara with her drama and then Emma with her torment stemming from trying to fill in the many shadows clouding her past.

But there is also a third protagonist, a person with contradictory feelings and attitudes: she basically has a good nature but can become ruthless. This dual nature is the result of prevarication suffered at a young age. The strong resentment and sense of revenge, leads this character to devise a crazy utopia that envisions creating a new world order in which prevarication will be eliminated and the redistribution of society’s wealth will take place more equitably, a project born on ethical grounds but the means he will use to achieve it will be highly questionable.

The themes that are covered in this novel are many such as the fifth dimension of crime, that is, the cybercrime that threatens each of us, and the theme of control through mental manipulation.

Important and topical themes for which the writing of this novel required a great deal of research work that the author did, also availing herself of the collaboration of the FBI in New York and Interpol in Lyon.

In addition, realities such as the birth of the web and its potential and innovative methods of psychoanalysis such as Milton Eriksson’s hypnosis are also analyzed through the stories of the protagonists, highlighting how extraordinary inventions, created for noble and altruistic purposes, in the hands of individuals devoid of ethics and driven only by selfishness and self-interest, end up becoming instruments of pain and oppression.

So many themes are addressed, but by privileging the direct conversation between the characters and the externalization of their thinking, the author brings the reader to find himself inside the story and to experience the emotions and tensions of the protagonists, proceeding alongside them from mystery to mystery, giving no respite, since in this book nothing is as it appears. Indeed, the vibrant tension that runs through the story is felt from the very beginning of the novel, and then continues and increases until the last page.
