Escrita en 1995, La paz de los sepulcros anuncia un futuro no muy lejano al terror de nuestro presente: una estremecedora profecía narrada con el soberbio estilo de Jorge Volpi.

En un hotel a las afueras de la Ciudad de México, dos cuerpos sin vida son encontrados: el de Alberto Navarro, importante político y posible candidato a la presidencia, y el de un joven desconocido. El primero en llegar a la escena del crimen es Agustín Oropeza, periodista de Tribuna del escándalo, quien reconoce la identidad del segundo cadáver y para quien este doble asesinato se convierte en un viaje a los rincones más oscuros de un país dominado por la corrupción, la prostitución, la violencia y el narcotráfico.

La crítica ha opinado:

"Triste, crudo y real. Como la novela. Una nueva oportunidad de acercarse a la realidad literaria, política y social de un país fascinante. Leany disfruten." -Juan Carlos Galindo, El País -
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 Agustín 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.
