Barcelona, 1943. Thirty-two-year-old Laia has it all — a job as a scriptwriter on a popular radio advice program, a devoted husband, and a baby on the way. But when her husband goes missing — at the same time a vicious killer is at large terrorizing the city — Laia’s world is shattered. Desperate, she turns to Mauricio, a private eye whose methods are rather … unconventional.
Under hypnosis, it is revealed that there may be more to this unassuming housewife and kindly advice columnist than meets the eye. At turns hilarious and unnerving, Ghostwriter is both a pitch black comedy and a mesmerizing detective story. Rendered in a clean-line chiaroscuro style and masterfully paced, Ghostwriter takes the reader on a wild ride full of twists and turns right through to its thrilling — and shocking — conclusion.
"An exceptional comic from one of the most thoughtful, personal and brilliant authors that we are lucky to have working in the Spanish comics [scene today]." — The Watcher
