Javier Sierra, autor del bestseller internacional LA CENA SECRETA, nos ofrece ahora una novela de misterio e intriga sobre una de las leyendas más antiguas y extrañas de América -la dama azul.

En Los Ángeles, Jennifer Narody, antigua espía del Departamento de Defensa, sueña repetidamente con una fantasmagórica mujer vestida de azul. Jennifer no lo sabe, pero ese mismo espíritu se apareció más de tres siglos atrás a los jefes de una tribu indígena de Nuevo México. Al parecer, la verdadera responsable de aquellos sucesos fue una monja española que podía "bilocarse" -esto es, que tenía la habilidad de estar en dos lugares a la vez.

Mientras, en España, una nevada deja aislado al periodista Carlos Albert en el remoto pueblo de Ágreda. Allí conocerá el convento que fundó en el siglo XVII aquella mujer de hábitos azules. Intrigado por sus poderes, decide investigar.

Estos hilos, unidos por el presunto suicidio de un sacerdote en Roma, llevarán a Carlos hasta Los Ángeles, donde las pesadillas de Jennifer Narody guardan la clave de un misterio que la Iglesia Católica, el Departamento de Defensa de los Estados Unidos y otras misteriosas fuerzas de las que es mejor no hablar, están empeñados en ocultar. El secreto de las bilocaciones de la dama azul está en juego.

There are several different storylines that intersect--all centered around the mysterious ability of a nun from the 17th century to bi-locate (seemingly be in two places at once). She lived in spain but appeared to the indians on New Mexico. Parts of the novel flash back to these historical events, but parts also take place in the present as several individuals are searching for the truth behind this ability. Along the way they seem to be guided or aided by supernatural forces.I had trouble following parts of this, and I found the premise so far fetched that I had trouble enjoying the story. If you enjoy a lot of mysticism in your stories you might like it.read more

This book is an interesting story about many different people. (That is a big reason why I only gave it 3 stars- sometimes it was difficult to follow the people and the times that they were in) It centers around a nun the "Lady in Blue" who bilocates aka- being in two places at once- from Spain to the Southwestern United States. The story brings in clergy of the Catholic church, police, a reporter and photgrapher, native americans, government officials etc- thus the confusion. I really enjoyed the book even though I did have to go back a couple of times to make sure I knew who was who and when they were doing it. It is SLIGHTLY along the lines of the DaVinci code in that it investigates into the Catholic church with a conspiracy theory. It is a contemporary story tied into historical fiction based on real people and events which always makes an interesting story to me. As mentioned before I would have given it more stars if it didn't require quite some much thought and energy. :)read more

Not as good as the his 'secret supper' but an engaging read nonetheless. Its a clever plot, well written and I do enjoy the use of stories set in different times that gradually converge - the technique is used well in this novel.read more

Strange book that had attracted me by his cover and title. It is about bilocation of a Spanish nun, the lady in blue, who converted Indian people in the 17th century in New Mexico. A young Spanish journalist Carlos Albert, who isn't religious, comes across tales about the nun en goes exploring. There are more threads in the book: one of them is about the Catholic church thinks about bilocation nowadays and in the seventeenth century; another is about Jennifer Narody who has been having a series of disturbing dreams involving images of a lady in blue. These threads linked by an apparant suicide, eventually lead Carlos to Cardinal Baldi, to an American spy and to Jennifer Narody. The story is like the stories of Dan Brown: it gives another view on some Christian stories and tells them as of these views are real. The difference is that the books of Dan Brown are far better written: they captivate the reader.
