A few days before dying in an accident, Guillermo confesses to his friend Eusebio that he is having a sadomasochistic relationship with a mysterious woman. Some time later, Eusebio looks for her to give her the news that Guillermo has died, and that she will never see him again. However, when he finds her it is love at first sight, and he decides not to tell her what he knows. Eusebio expects her to abuse him and humiliate him sexually as she had done with Guillermo, but Julia only gives him tender caresses. Here stems the insidious doubt that will hover over Eusebio: Is the woman who beat his friend with a riding crop and the woman who embraces him so tenderly really the same person?

Newspapers & Magazines
"Woman in Darkness effectively strikes the elusive balance between the deeply erotic and the literary by exploring controversial themes with maturity."-Foreword Reviews; "'Woman in Darkness' is, in essence, a fascinating story of a man's inability to deal with his lover's hidden past."-Tony's Reading List; "This is an uncomfortably well-written novel, the contrast between its tone and the dark realities particularly effective. 'Woman in Darkness' is unsettling, but it's well-crafted and well-written, a disturbingly easy read."-Michael Orthofer, The Complete Review; "Luisge Martin opens up his soul through his original, authentic and impulsive characters. An author in search of intelligent readers unafraid to explore the most torrid depths of human desire." -ABC; "Luisge Martin descends into the abyss of love and sex in 'Woman in Darkness', a hypnotic and breathless tale, which brings to mind the stories of Tanizaki." -Manuel Rodriguez Rivero, Babelia, El Pais; "Brilliantly written, expertly plotted, it keeps readers on their toes, all with enough tension and intrigue of a great detective novel."-Julian Gallo, Desvario
