""El intruso retiró el muñeco y observó la carita de la niña [...]. No había ya luz en su rostro y la sensación de estar ante un receptáculo vacío se acrecentó al llevarse de nuevo el muñeco a la cara para aspirar el aroma infantil, ahora enriquecido por el aliento de un alma." Ha pasado ya un mes desde que la inspectora de la Policía Foral recuperó a su hijo y pudo detener a Berasategui. Pero a pesar de que tanto la Guardia Civil como el juez Markina dan por muerta a Rosario, Amaia siente que no está libre de peligro, un desasosiego que sólo Jonan comprende. La muerte súbita de una niña en Elizondo resulta sospechosa: el bebé tiene unas marcas rojizas en el rostro que indican que ha habido presión digital, y, además, su padre intenta llevarse el cadáver. La bisabuela de la pequeña sostiene que la tragedia es obra de Inguma, el demonio que inmoviliza a los durmientes, se bebe su aliento y les arrebata la vida durante el sueño. Pero serán los análisis forenses del doctor San Martín los que convencen a Amaia Salazar de investigar otras muertes de bebés, que pronto revelarán un rastro inaudito en el valle. Berasategui muere, entonces, inexplicablemente en su celda, lo que despliega una trepidante investigación que llevará a Amaia al auténtico origen de los sucesos que han asolado el valle de Baztán. Y mientras, desde el bosque, una impresionante tormenta llega para sepultar la verdad más demoledora."--Page [4] of cover.
"In Pamplona, capital of Navarra, Amaia Salazar is called in to investigate the death of a still-born baby girl and the arrest of the child's father. According to the grandmother of the family, the father tried to run away with the body of the baby while uttering some strange sayings about an offering. The baby has some red marks on her face that indicate that she has been murdered. The grandmother also talks about a magical creature: an nightmarish evil being that immobilizes people and prevents them from waking up after their sleep. It is the Inguma, the one who takes your life away while you are asleep. The investigation of this case will take Amaia and her team to discover some procedural irregularities in similar cases that occurred in the nearby valley of Batzán many years ago and that reveal an unusually high number of cases for such a small area. Meanwhile, the murderer Berasategui, who is transferred to another prison by judge Marquina, is found dead in his cell due to a drug-induced coma, dome with somebody else's help. OFFERING TO THE STORM is a gripping and hair-rising thriller in which the plot accelerates towards a surprising ending in which Amaia must face the true origin of the events that have ravaged the Baztan valley for years. Even if an impressive snowstorm tries to bury the most devastating truth."--Author's website.
