The publishing house (La editorial)

Family business is all that matters

Founded more than half a century ago in the Basque Country, Egurra Publishing is one of the most reputable in the national literary world. But the sudden death of its founder, Gervasio Egurra, has turned everything upside down.

Gervas, the eldest son, believes he should take over as director, although his sisters, Mercedes and Julia, have other plans. Doña Nieves, the family matriarch, demands that the position be inherited by Emilio Goián, a respected businessman completely unrelated to the family, who proposes changing the traditional business system into a holding, generating even more tension among the heirs.

Everything worsens when Gervas dies followed by more unexpected and apparently unconnected deaths.

Thus, as the Egurras deal with their clashes and ambitions, a police investigation will begin in the captivating publishing world, full of jealousy, hatred, and surprises.
