Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

En Medell?n, una de las ciudades m's violentas de la tierra, un ?ngel Exterminador recorre las calles limpi?ndolas de una buena parte de sus habitantes, y librando, de paso, al narrador de lo que parece molestarlo m?s: el pr?jimo. Alexis, el ?ngel, es un chiquillo de las barriadas, un sicario o asesino a sueldo, sin padre y sin ley. Pose?do por el misticismo de la destrucci?n, su vida avanza sobre charcos de sangre. Y en tanto las iglesias, mudos testimonios de una religiosidad antigua, se vac?an de fieles, la morgue se llena de cad?veres.

Synopsis:

It is stranger than fiction and worst than a horror movie. Set in Medell?n, La Virgen de los Sicarios is a shout of protest against the violence destroying Colombia. The protagonist, Fernando, has a lover who is killed, and Fernando unwittingly takes up with the youngster who did the killing. The killings typical of the real Medellin are taken to the absurd in a dark, sharp book that blames the church and the political elite for Colombia s tragedy.
