Hong Kong: a girl, a priest, an inviolable secret. Against the backdrop of the former British colony, a
breathtaking thriller where nobody, or almost, is what it seems. Is a priest always before God, even
when God disappears? But if you betray God, who will you not be able to betray?
The first thriller by Aurelio Porfiri of a series of detective stories that will revolve around the sacraments.
This deals with the sacrament of penance, but the story will also extend to other very important and
current issues, such as China, the post‐conciliar crisis, the situation of restlessness that is experienced in
Hong Kong, divided between its Chinese identity and his aspiration to freedom. A story with
metaphysical traits but well anchored to historical and ecclesial relevance, a story to understand reality
from other points of view.
