Already a major bestseller in Spain and Latin America, the first installment of the sensational White City Trilogy introduces Inspector Unai López de Ayala and follows his hunt for a terrifying serial killer.

Young Inspector Unai López de Ayala, known as “Kraken,” is charged with investigating a series of ritualistic murders. The murders are eerily similar to ones that rattled the citizens of Vitoria twenty years earlier. But back then, police were sure they had discovered the killer, a prestigious archaeologist who is currently in jail. Now Kraken must race to determine whether the killer had an accomplice or whether the wrong man has been incarcerated for two decades. This fast-paced, unrelenting thriller weaves in and out of mythology and legends of the Basque country as it hurtles to its shocking conclusion.

PHENOMENAL INTERNATIONAL SALES TRACK: To date, the trilogy has sold more than one million copies in Spanish-language editions, and translation rights have been sold in Italian, German, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), Czech, Greek, Dutch, and Bulgarian.

BASQUE NOIR: Set against the backdrop of the beautiful streets of Vitoria (Basque country) and the peculiarities of its culinary scene, customs, and surrounding villages, the novel combines these elements with intricate mysteries that accentuate the novel’s darkness and bring the unique history of the Basque region to life.

COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN: The movie, produced by Atresmedia Cine and directed by Daniel Calparsoro, will be released in Spain in August 2019.

STRONG AUTHOR PLATFORM: Eva García Sáenz de Urturi has 111k followers on Twitter, 21k on Facebook, and 30.9k on Instagram, and will be available for publicity engagements to promote the three installments of the trilogy.

Eva García Sáenz de Urturi was born in Vitoria and has been living in Alicante since she was fifteen years old. She published her first novel, La saga de los longevos (The Immortal Collection), in 2012, and it became a sales phenomenon in Spain, Latin America, the United States, and the United Kingdom. She is also the author of Los hijos de Adán (The Sons of Adam) and the historical novel Pasaje a Tahití (Passage to Tahiti). In 2016 she published the first installment of the White City Trilogy, titled El silencio de la ciudad blanca (The Silence of the White City), followed by Los ritos del agua (The Water Rituals) and Los señores del tiempo (The Lords of Time).

Airmail’s No. 3 Best Book of the Year
Crime by the Book’s Best Detective Novel of the Year


“An enthralling, full-bodied epic about how the past is always present in Vitoria, the city where the crimes take place…. You’ll want to race through The Silence of the White City, but it’s best to slow down and savor the full effect of the volatile, intoxicating universe Sáenz has created. This is the first novel of the White City trilogy to be translated into English—the second can’t come fast enough.”
AirMail

The Silence of the White City is a rare literary thriller, likely to whet your appetite for more from this talented author.”
—AARP

“Combining textures of contemporary European noir, police procedurals, and the unique mythology of the Basque peoples, Garcia Saenz paints a vivid, unforgettable landscape.”
CrimeReads

“There’s a buzz around Eva García Sáenz and her trilogy, and The Silence of the White City is a crime novel you’ll want to put at the top of your summer reading list.”
New York Journal of Books

“This immersive, intricate crime novel will thrill readers looking for high-caliber crime writing that is also just plain fun to devour. Moving seamlessly between past and present, and delving deep into the region’s history and into the inner lives of its characters, The Silence of the White City is an exceptional serial killer thriller that deserves to be read by anyone who has loved The Silence of the Lambs or TV dramas like Mindhunter.”
—Crime by the Book

“Stunning…. Fascinating local color, a handsomely crafted plot, and exquisite characterization make this a standout. Readers will eagerly await the next volume in the series.” 
Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed)

“In much the same way that Cara Black or Donna Leon portray Paris or Venice in their respective mystery series, Sáenz lovingly depicts a unique and fascinating city, weaving in Basque folklore and culture while spinning a very complex and rich story.”
BookPage

“A work of impressive scope and depth, compellingly written.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred)
