From the Back Cover:

“Exquisitamente desgarradora ... muy peculiar y brillantemente concebida ... como una novela detectivesca metafísica”. —New York Times Book Review

“Esta investigación de un asesinato cometido hace años se convierte en una exploración alucinante, una búsqueda a tientas, en la oscuridad que se cierne alrededor de los propósitos humanos, de la verdad que contínuamente se nos escapa”. —New York Review of Books

“Brillante ... Una pequeña obra maestra ... casi podemos percibir, oler y oír este rincón caribeño, tan olvidado del mundo, que nos brinda García Márquez”. —San Francisco Chronicle

“Tan impresionante y difícil de olvidar como un intenso condimento; un examen a fondo del juego entre complicidad y fatalidad ... de ejecución exquisita”. —Christian Science Monitor

“Un tour de force . . . En una prosa frugal y a la vez preñada de significado, García Márquez nos da no sólo una crónica sino el retrato de un pueblo y de su espíritu colectivo ... no sólo de una familia, sino de una cultura entera”. —Washington Post Book World

From the Inside Flap:

Un hombre regresa al pueblo donde ocurrii un asesinato desconcertante 27 anos atras, con la determinaciin de descubrir la verdad. Todos parecen estar de acuerdo en que Bayardo San Roman, silo unas horas despues de su matrimonio con la bella Angela Vicario, la devuelve por deshonrada a la casa paterna. La atribulada familia fuerza a la novia a revelar el nombre de su primer amante; y los hermanos gemelos de ella anuncian su intenciin de matar a Santiago Nasar por haber deshonrado a su hermana.
Sin embargo, si todos sabian que se iba a cometer un asesinato, por que nadie trati de impedirlo? Cuanto mas se sabe de este asunto, menos se comprende, y cuando la historia al fin se precipita a su inesperada conclusiin, una sociedad entera --no silo un par de asesinos-- esta siendo enjuiciada.
