The winner of the Alfaguara Novel Prize and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize returns with a thrilling crime set in Lima in the 1990s. Four friends recall an event from their adolescence about which only they know the truth. What is their true implication in the death of their teacher? In years of upheaval in the history of Peru, this crime has been kept silent by attacks and bombs: some deaths are concealed by others; general horror always overrides individual events. Santiago Roncagliolo skillfully and starkly tackles universal themes like sexual awakening in adolescence, the absence of a sense of danger, the need for self-affirmation taken to its ultimate consequences, and the lack of discrimination between good and evil.
