Paperback - Spanish

Un thriller apasionante

Con motivo del 50 aniversario de Alfaguara, este titulo ha sido elegido como uno de los 50 imprescindibles de la historia de la editorial.

Sono el telefono y supo que la iban a matar. Lo supo con tanta certeza que se quedo inmovil, la cuchilla en alto, el cabello pegado a la cara entre el vapor del agua caliente que goteaba en los azulejos. Bip-bip. Se quedo muy quieta, conteniendo el aliento como si la inmovilidad o el silencio pudieran cambiar el curso de lo que ya habia ocurrido. Bip-bip. Estaba en la banera, depilandose la pierna derecha, el agua jabonosa por la cintura, y su piel desnuda se erizo igual que si acabara de reventar el grifo del agua fria. Bip-bip. En el estereo del dormitorio, los Tigres del Norte cantaban historias de Camelia la Tejana. La traicion y el contrabando, decian, son cosas compartidas.

La critica ha dicho...
El encuentro de John Le Carre con Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Perez-Reverte tiene un enorme grupo de seguidores que sigue creciendo.
The Wall Street Journal

Es un contador de historias increible.
USA Today

Entretenida como pocas, hermosa por su construccion e inquietante por la grave problematica que late debajo de la aventura criminal. A esta radiografia del delito anade ademas el autor un canto a la propia literatura.
El Cultural

Pasen y lean. El espectaculo esta no solamente servido sino asegurado.
El Pais

Junten el desencanto neorromantico de Barry Gifford con la maestria narrativa de Juan Marse y anadan una banda sonora con el desgarro de Chavela Vargas. El resultado de semejante mezcolanza ya tiene titulo: La Reina del Sur.
El Periodico de Cataluna

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The phone rang and she knew they were going to kill her. The certainty of it kept her motionless, blade high in the air, hair stuck to her face, a cloud of steam and drops of water cursing down the tiles. Blip, blip. Frozen, she held her breath as if the stillness, or the silence, could somehow change the course of the past. Blip, blip. She was sitting in the bathtub, in the middle of shaving her right leg, soapy water rising to her waist, her flesh full of goose-bumps the warm water did nothing to ease. Blip, blip. In her bedroom, the stereo blasted Los Tigres del Norte singing Camelia la Tejana -betrayal and contraband, they said, are like oil and vinegar. So begins a journey that will transform this innocent barrio beauty into a woman who is tough and powerful enough to write her own rules.
