The Silence of the White City Book Club Kit

August 5th, 2020

There’s nothing better than a thrilling series, and we can’t wait to introduce you to the start of an exciting new trilogy! Now available in English, The Silence of the White City is the first book in the internationally acclaimed White City Trilogy. If you love a brilliant detective, an enigmatic serial killer, a multi-generational narrative, and a complicated love story, this story is for you!

To give you a sneak peek, we’ve packed this post with links, maps, and other goodies for you to click and download to make your experience even MORE gripping. So hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride.

First up, let’s get in the crime-solving mood by watching this heart-racing trailer. Meet Inspector Kraken and glimpse the eerie, dark corners of Vitoria where the crimes take place.

Not only is The Silence of the White City full of nail-biting suspense and forensic crime solving, it’s also steeped in the sights and sounds (and tastes!) of the Basque Country. We’re excited to share this delicious recipe for the Basque Country Omelette that you can bring to your book club or enjoy on your own. Even if you can’t harvest wild mushrooms from Vitoria’s countryside, you can still savor this delicacy while getting swept up in the history and intrigue of this summer’s most tantalizing thriller.


In our opinion, Vitoria’s historic landmarks are just as intriguing as the crimes themselves (if not more so!), and the weaving together of the two is just brilliant. From The Plaza de la Virgen Blanca to Kraken’s apartment, click around this map for your own personally guided tour of Vitoria.


Are you hooked yet? We thought so. Now, hold onto your hat because we’ve got a full excerpt of the Prologue and Chapter One to help you jump right into the action. Keep your eyes peeled for landmarks like the Santa Maria Cathedral, Calle Cuchilleria, and more as you immerse yourself into the world of the White City.


Whew, we’ve covered a lot of ground. You’ve been introduced to Kraken, tasted and toured Vitoria, and even started the book! Now all that’s left to do is finish the mystery (once you start you won’t be able to stop), and discuss with your bookish friends. So gather your fellow mystery/thriller fans and get the conversation started with these intriguing questions!
