La aparici#65533;n del cuerpo sin vida de Alberto Navarro, ministro del Interior mexicano y posible candidato a la presidencia del pa#65533;s, junto al cad#65533;ver de un hombre desconocido en la habitaci#65533;n de un hotel de las afueras de la capital mexicana, conmueve a una sociedad desafortunadamente acostumbrada a la corrupci#65533;n y el despotismo de sus gobernantes, los abusos del ej#65533;rcito y la violencia sanguinaria de sus c#65533;rteles de droga y delincuentes.


Pero para Agust#65533;n Oropeza, periodista de la prensa amarilla, el doble asesinato va m#65533;s all#65533; de una exclusiva para la Tribuna del esc#65533;ndalo, cuando reconoce la identidad del cad#65533;ver del hombre que perdi#65533; la vida junto al asesinado ministro.
Con el estilo reflexivo y magistral que caracteriza a Jorge Volpi , y sin omitir la aplastante realidad de M#65533;xico, el autor nos adentra a trav#65533;s de Oropeza en el submundo de la prostituci#65533;n infantil, funcionarios corruptos y una vida nocturna colmada de drogas y de una actividad sexual fren#65533;tica que convive con una sociedad que coexiste con el miedo, el asombro y el apetito por lo morboso. Son tiempos de desolaci#65533;n en que cabe preguntarse qu#65533; sucede en las altas esferas y qu#65533; esconde la realidad pol#65533;tica."

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The dead body of Alberto Navarro, Mexican Interior Minister and possible candidate for the presidency, was found next to the dead body of an unknown man in a hotel room on the outskirts of Mexico City; the population, unfortunately too familiar with the corruption and totalitarianism of its rulers, abuses by the army, and bloody violence of its drug cartels, is visibly disturbed by these findings.

But once Agust#65533;n Oropeza, a gossip column reporter, recognizes the identity of the dead man found next to the murdered politician, the double murder goes beyond an exclusive article for the Tribuna newspaper.

With the masterful narrative style that characterizes Jorge Volpi , through Oropeza, Volpi takes us into the devastating reality of Mexico, its underground world of child prostitution, corrupt officials, and a nightlife full of raving sexual activity and drugs. We delve into a society where fear, shock value, and craving for the morbid coexist. These are times of anguish and despair in which we wonder what happens in the high circles of society and what politics is really hiding.
