"Cuando Amaia Salazar tenía doce años estuvo perdida en el bosque durante dieciséis horas. Era de madrugada cuando la encontraron a treinta kilómetros al norte del lugar donde se había despistado de la senda. Desvanecida bajo la intensa lluvia, la ropa ennegrecida y chamuscada como la de una bruja medieval rescatada de una hoguera, y, en contraste, la piel blanca, limpia y helada como si acabase de surgir del hielo.”

En agosto de 2005, mucho antes de los crímenes que conmocionaron el valle del Baztán, una joven Amaia Salazar de veinticinco años, subinspectora de la Policía Foral, participa en un curso de intercambio para policías de la Europol en la Academia del FBI en Estados Unidos que imparte Aloisius Dupree, el jefe de la unidad de investigación. Una de las pruebas consiste en estudiar un caso real de un asesino en serie a quien llaman “el compositor”, que siempre actúa durante grandes desastres naturales atacando a familias enteras y siguiendo una puesta en escena casi litúrgica. Amaia se convertirá inesperadamente en parte del equipo de la investigación que les llevará hasta Nueva Orleans, en vísperas del peor huracán de su historia, para intentar adelantarse al asesino...

Pero una llamada de su tía Engrasi desde Elizondo despertará en Amaia antiguos fantasmas de su infancia que lo pueden cambiar todo, exponiéndola de nuevo a la cara norte del corazón.
