"Easy Prey" is a story about a police investigation with the background of banking, preferred stocks and forced evictions. Inspector Olga Tabares and her partner, Inspector Carlos Sotillo, are investigating a series of deaths of people working in banking.
In recent years, modern democracies, based on the "social contract" emanating from the French Revolution, have neglected their duty to protect and defend their citizens against the voracity of financial and economic powers, thus unilaterally breaking that fundamental pact that guarantees social peace. And when an agreement is broken, the other party feels cheated, disappointed and relieved of any commitment. The risk of someone deciding to take the law into their own hands is therefore very high. And the possibility that events such as these become the fuse of a social revolt should not be underestimated.
That's the moral conflict Inspector Tabares finds herself in when she finds out who's behind the murders she's investigating.
