This story is about public corruption in a small Colombian town. It is in English, translated from its original Spanish. I think it lost a lot in the translation. I found it difficult to understand the relationships between the characters and some of the story line. It is fairly short and easy to read, but it feels like every other sentence is missing. I was always asking myself... "Did I miss something?" and then reread a section only to understand what/why something took place just as much as the first time around. I'm sure it's better in the original language.
