The Brotherhood of Evil (La hermandad del mal)

The Dismemberer of Majadahonda.

Two women disappeared five years apart. They do not know each other and have never seen each other; Liria was born in Salamanca (Spain) and Adriana in Buenos Aires. The only thing that unites them is the house in Majadahonda (city on the outskirts of Madrid) where they both lived at in different points of time.

Eduardo, Adriana’s brother, searches everywhere to find her, but, like Liria, the last trace of her is in the house where she used to live. No one has missed Liria in the last 5 years, but someone has taken it upon themselves to pay her bills and manage her bank account. Bruno, the landlord, has explanations for everything: Liria, her aunt, has moved to Avila (Spain) and her tenant has run off with a boyfriend. However, the Civil Guard detects the rusty smell of blood and realizes that Bruno is lying. In the garage they find an industrial meat grinder with the DNA of the two women. Bruno suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and is the double murderer they are looking for, a clean criminal with a double life.

What the critics have said:

“A true crime not suitable for sensitive readers that tells the story of Bruno Hernandez Vega, the “Dismemberer of Majadahonda”, a man accused of killing and making his aunt Liria and her tenant Adriana disappear. But Bruno has paranoid schizophrenia and that changes everything.” El País

“An epic story, precise, exhaustive, wisely structured. It is a book that engages and shakes; a book that invites the reader to reflect. Highly recommended.” Amazon
