Synopsis: El Caso was the first events newspaper after the Civil War. It narrated news as black chronicles and social topics and it allowed the public to understand what was happening around them. Its pages were full of famous criminals, huge offenses and dark and evil behaviors.

In this big book Juan shows us the history of that exciting publication. It is an incredible journey through the past of El Caso using texts, photos, complete copies and covers full of surprising events, many of them accompanied by blood and mystery.

Crimes are a great mirror in which a country can see its history. Crimes say a lot about the criminal, but also about time and society in which they are committed. Because of that, El Caso is a huge testimony. It was a witness of a deep and real Spain, different from the official version that power wanted to tell.

When democracy arrives, UCD and PSOE use it to get their private objectives. Finally, they privatized it but only because they wanted to connect it with groups with their same ideology.
