Una Novela Criminal / A Crime Novel

£29.99

Product description

In Spanish. The jury has awarded "a fascinating story of the Cassez-Vallarta case, one that for many years, shocked Mexican society and generated a diplomatic disagreement between France and Mexico. Breaking away from all the conventions known to this genre, the author places the reader face to face with reality, without any intermediaries. In this story, the narrator is simply an onlooker that analyses the facts and puts them in order. His watchful eye is the question, but there are no answers here, only the perplexity of what is real."Everything that is narrated in this novel is exactly the way it happened, all its characters are real people, and the story, masterfully unravelled and illuminated to its very last corner by a great investigative task, is real. A ruthless narration when showing the intricacies of power, the deepest roots of corruption and its scope, just like the dull mechanisms of justice. Una Novela Criminal / A Crime Novel is also a brave criticism of the social cost of policies set forth to declare war on crime without looking to put an end to its root causes.
