This unusual novel narrates the professor Alfonso Pacheco's incursions in two cases of homicide in the contemporary Oaxaca. The story begins when Pacheco, a solitary reader and a retired high school professor, stumbles upon the murder of a sacristan, stabbed to death. We find out the professor´s liking of police mysteries and the fact that the Chief of Homicides is his friend, as well as a former student of his, whom he helps to solve the crime. One day later another murder happens, that of a wealthy businessman found dead in his home. As the narration goes on we find about Pacheco's past, about the reason of his solitude and of his desire for the city of Oaxaca to be covered by snow. The plot, rhythmic and encircling, captivates us within a tricky world, hand in hand with a man tormented by his ghosts, that stroll in the picturesque, "mezcalero" and " enmolado" landscape of Oaxaca. Esta insólita novela narra las incursiones del profesor Alfonso Pacheco en dos casos de homicidio en la Oaxaca contemporánea. La historia comienza cuando Pacheco, solitario lector y retirado profesor de secundaria, se topa con el asesinato de un sacristán, muerto a puñaladas. Nos enteramos de la afición del profesor a los misterios policiacos y sabemos que es amigo del jefe de homicidios, antiguo alumno suyo a quien ayuda a resolver el crimen. Un día después sucede otro asesinato, el de un adinerado empresario muerto en su domicilio. Conforme transcurre la narración nos enteramos del pasado de Pacheco, de la razón de su soledad y de sus ganas de que la nieve cubra la ciudad de Oaxaca. La trama, acompasada y envolvente, nos atrapa en un mundo escabroso, de la mano de un hombre atormentado por sus fantasmas, que deambulan en el pintoresco, mezcalero y enmolado paisaje oaxaqueño.
