I'm a self-published author, about to upload my second novel to amazon as a Kindle and paperback.
I was one of winners of the National Short story Contest in my country.
Descripción del libro
The novel is in Spanish, and the title translates into “In Land of wolves”. It is a crime novel set in the 1980’s. The main story arc follows the manhunt for Marcos García who kills one of the mobster’s bosses of a former violent period. The police turns García’s apprehension into a priority after he kills a senator and exhibits his body by hanging it from a building site for the whole city to see (which shows that García isn’t a regular hitman but one of the most dangerous killers of the country). But as they follow García’s steps, the police officers in charge of the case, Eduardo Rivera and Agustín Díaz, will peak some of the dark secrets that high profile figures (such as the dead senator) keep hidden. But not only the police chases after Marcos García. The two main mafia families of the country will spare no life to find García and make him pay.
One of my ideas while writing this book was to create something different from the standard crime novels. The police officers are not “invincible” heroes with superhuman detective skills, but average men who would succumb to the truths that they will encounter. As well, there’s some presence of mysticism in the events of the novel (although they’re never referenced as such, the characters and reader can sense it).
