Andrea Mérida, viuda de militar, madre de tres hijos, pensionista, ha muerto por sobredosis de cocaína. Nadie ha oído ni visto nada. Nadie puede explicar si los angeles droga fue ingerida voluntaria, informal o intencionadamente. Nadie parece ganar con esa muerte. El caso es que l. a. Navidad se tiñe de desánimo.
Por eso Álvarez make a decision rescatar a un buen amigo de su retiro voluntario.Blue Christmas supone el regreso de un Ricardo Blanco más humano, más frágil, más hondo. Un relato, unos personajes, a un tiempo melancólicos e intensos que reflejan, como pocos, los angeles historia de una concern. los angeles sexta entrega de los angeles saga del detective canario es, acaso, los angeles más social e íntima de todas. Se desgranan, si no las causas, sí las consecuencias de una época comprometida y crítica: el paro, el desahucio, los angeles soledad, l. a. miseria. Y lo que el ser humano es capaz de hacer para salir de ellos
