The Los iniciados saga includes four bestselling thriller novels: Lady Massacre (Planeta, 2013), Hideous Melancholy (Planeta, 2016), Journal of the End of the World (Planeta, 2018), and Akelarre (Planeta, 2019). Frank Molina, the
protagonist of all the stories, is an alcoholic private investigator with bipolar disorder determined to solve several crimes in Bogotá, including a serial murderer (and possible copycat) involved in the assassination of prostitutes, just like Jack the Ripper in England more than a century ago.
Throughout the four titles, Molina will be joined by a roster of intriguing characters: a psychiatrist tormented by his patients; a priest who used to be Molina’s mentor; and a highsociety woman in pursuit of justice. Until he figures it all out, Molina will become more and more involved in the cases, until his daily life is impacted by what he sees, discovers, and investigates. Is there a common factor connecting the cases Molina is investigating, or are the parallels between them mere coincidences?
