Secrets That Should Have Stayed in The Past

Based On a True Story

The corpse of a man beaten to death is found on a deserted beach. The body belongs to a writer, who is in town to attend the premiere of the movie adaptation of his most famous book.

In the same night a young man confesses the murder, but shortly after a new question arises: why all the evidence collected by the local Police show that he is innocent? The plot thickens when the victim’s bride, an art collector with her own plans, decides to reach out. This mysterious woman has something to say, but is she innocent?

After The Cardinal, Nuno Nepomuceno returns and finally presents the last chapter of the Afonso Catalão series. Passing through Cambridge, Amsterdam and Venice, inspired by the death of Pier Paolo Pasolini, following the five elements of a movie, The Jewish Bride is an intelligent, bold and seductive thriller, that you won’t be able to put down until you discover the hole truth.
