In the shady backstreets of late nineteenth-century Barcelona, where nothing is quite what it seems, a prosperous heir's carefree life is turned upside down when he investigates the mysterious disappearance of his working-class mistress. Maurici Aldaḅ is the scion of a prominent manufacturing family, a member of the wealthy Barcelona bourgeoisie. But Aldaḅ's seemingly charmed life is interrupted when his mistress, a seamstress, vanishes without a trace, drawing him into an obsessive search through the city's underworld. Inspired by a popular urban legend about the white slave trade and the disappearance of a young woman in a lingerie store, the novel explores the connections between Barcelona's criminal underground and its echelons of power. Named after a real street in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, The Street of the Three Beds reveals the colorful and corrupt hidden life of the city.
