Завършил медицина и специализирал психиатрия Хорхе Букай създава разтърсващ психологически трилър. В основата му са политическите машинации. По изключително интригуващ начин Букай показва на какво са способни устременните към властта, а именно - прегазват всичко и всеки пред себе си, манипулирайки изстрадалото общество. Романът поглежда и към страховете на хората и изборът ни да се предадем пред тях или да се изправим и да ги преборим.

I generally don't like political thrillers but I did enjoy this one. Characters and plot made sense. There were a couple of things in the plot that seemed improbable but that was ok too. It was a page turner even though the pages turned slowly for me because it is in Spanish.

Great political thriller.
Particularly interesting for people who are familiar with Latin America's contemporary history and their political culture.
