The Mystery of Sintra's Road.

Summer of 1870. Two writers, Eça and Ramalho. Ramalho is kidnapped. The challenge is launched. To write a four hand detective story to the Newspaper. Will it be that the story that they created as fiction is based on a real case? This is the question that supports the conflict between these two writers, and part them in an almost deadly duel between Sintra and Malta.

The publication continues, and with it threats, duels, sex and intrigues. Lisbon is in uproar. Everybody takes the side of the betrayed count. The crimes continue to happen in a story in which the love is stronger than tradition, the intrigue escapes to the evidences and everything runs wildly, as in a game. The Mystery of Sintra's Road challenges all the conventions in a sharp criticism to the customs of the romantic Portuguese society of the XIX century
