Synopsis

The detention of Tim Black, a stylist who works with beautiful and sophisticated women in the service of a corruption network in Miami, activates U.S. federal agencies to investigate dozens of crimes committed by the military and civilian political elite in Venezuela. 

A beauty contest turned into a massive white slave trade, it operates under the applause of a snobbish society that proudly assumes that its representatives are turned into dolls and that they are winners in international events, while drug trafficking, arms purchases, terrorism, and corruption are daily scenarios for those who control the institutions and operate with impunity. But their lives are complicated when Tim becomes the thread between the perversions of the dictatorship's hierarchs and the bloodhounds who have proposed to put their hands on the mafia bosses whose actions extend beyond the borders of the Caribbean country and are considered a global geopolitical problem. 

Three of the dolls come to be linked to high officials of the Venezuelan government. They take advantage of the amorality of a regime that rewards dishonesty; they enjoy like queens some goods that don't belong to them and are witnesses and accomplices of the crimes. They also have secrets. They follow the same path, but their feelings are different.

Las Muñecas de la Corona is an exciting thriller where power, crime, and sex hold hands between twisted rulers who will do whatever it takes to stay in power.
