Synopsis:
Spanish Description:
Adan Gorozpe es un arribista, y lo reconoce sin ambages. Su matrimonio con Priscila, codiciada heredera del poderoso empresario Celestino Holguin (mejor conocido como el Rey del Bizcocho), fue un afortunado lance que, en palabras llanas, se llama dar el braguetazo, y lo llevo de pobreton pasante de la carrera de Leyes a influyente abogado empresarial dueno de vidas y haciendas, aun mas encumbrado que su suegro. Como le queda claro que la dicha conyugal, si acaso estuvo en sus planes, jamas llegara, establece una tajante frontera: de un lado quedan el tedio matrimonial y la ridiculez familiar, y del otro su esfera de poder y los encuentros eroticos con su amante Ele, real mujer de su vida.

Asi las cosas entra en escena Adan Gongora, ministro a cargo de la seguridad nacional, chiquito, pero picoso: minusculo hombrecito por su baja estatura, pero gran calamidad por los alcances de su malicia. Dada la corrupcion gigantesca de las fuerzas del orden, en las que la mitad de los policias son criminales y la mitad de los criminales, policias, tiene plena certeza de cual es la mejor estrategia para combatir ese caos: Todos sabemos que la seguridad nacional es insegura. Las fuerzas del orden se alian facilmente con las fuerzas del desorden. Los policias ganan sueldos de miseria. Los criminales les multiplican el sueldo. De tres mil pesos mensuales a trescientos mil. El Ejercito nacional hace labores impropias de la fuerza armada. Es un Ejercito dedicado a labores de policia y derrotado por los criminales, mejor armados que ellos… Yo hare una limpia de las fuerzas del orden. Menos policias y mejor pagados. A ver si asi.

Pero, en los hechos, los metodos de Gongora son espeluznantes: se alia con los peores criminales y encierra o manda matar a los menos aptos; encarcela inocentes y a veces a uno que otro culpable, exhibe a estos y a aquellos y se gana a la opinion publica como garante de la justicia; tambien procede contra clasemedieros con dificultades hipotecarias y uno que otro millonario, para dar sabor al caldo; falsea las estadísticas de la lucha contra el crimen con su cosecha propia de jovenes inocentes a los cuales manda asesinar y luego presenta como presuntos guerrilleros…

Un dia, Gongora le propone a Gorozpe coludirse para elevar su jueguito al mas alto nivel publico: Todos los politicos estan quemados. Son inutiles. No saben gobernar. No saben administrar… Que tal si usted y yo, tocayo, apoyamos a un candidato imposible para la primera magistratura del pais?. Ese candidato, claro, seria Gorozpe, solo que para este momento este sabe que debe deshacerse de Gongora, o al menos neutralizarlo. Esta asqueado del personaje, de sus metodos, de tanta podredumbre. Incluso los cerdos ponen limites a la mierda que tragan. Y para mayor inri, un condimento: Gongora y Priscila parecen haber iniciado un affaire. Como proceder contra tan formidable adversario? Como detener el remolino que arrastra al pais hacia la cloaca?

La unica via abierta siempre es la del espiritu. Ciega e irracional, pero tambien poderosa, avasalladora, la fe sigue ahi. Un Nino Dios alado empieza a predicar en medio del trafico de la mayor avenida de la ciudad y su madre, la Virgen, lo acompana. Las alas del nino son postizas y su madre es quien se las coloca, pero eso no importa. La gente cree, quiere creer, necesita creer, y eso basta.

La novela ofrece un gran final que da destino a todos los personajes, sin descuidar a ninguno, a traves de la irrupcion de los Sigfridos, brazo armado de la muerte que, convocados por Adan Gorozpe, llegan para arrasar con la plaga.

Book Description: ALFAGUARA, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 147 mm. Language: Spanish Brand New Book. Adan Gorozpe is an upstart, a fact he freely acknowledges. His fortuitous marriage to Priscila heiress to powerful businessman Celestino Holguin transforms him from a lowly law-school graduate to an influential attorney, a man who now rules over the lives of people and extensive properties, a man that is held in the highest regard. Adan Gongora is the National Security Secretary; a tiny slip of a man, the extent of his cruelty belies the shortness of his stature. In a country weighed down by massive corruption, his goal is to end the chaos. Gongora s clean-up methods are horrifying: the incompetent are eliminated, the innocent locked behind bars or assassinated. One day, Gongora invites Gorozpe to run for the magistrature. But Gorozpe knows that it is time to get rid of, or at least neutralize, Gongora. So, how does one proceed when faced with an adversary of this caliber? How does a person stop the current that seems to be dragging the country directly to the drain?. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9786071103062
