9788466313216: La silla del Aguila (Punto de Lectura) (Spanish Edition)

A detailed vision of the powers and miseries of Mexican politics. It is the year 2020, in a Mexico without telecommunications or computers because the United States (owner and exclusive supplier of everything) has punished them. This is also the year in which the presidency is being disputed, in other words, it will be decided who will seat in the Seat of Power to never leave it. The winner, the Anointed one, hides an amazing secret that he must conceal at all costs.

Description in Spanish: El Presidente Lorenzo Terán, un hombre bueno pero abúlico. Su intrigante jefe de Gabinete, Tácito de la Canal. Su calculador secretario de Gobernación, Bernal Herrera. Mondragón von Bertrab, el severo secretario de la Defensa, portador de un terrible secreto. El jefe de la policía, Cícero Arruza, que no tiene enemigos porque los ha matado a todos. Y dominándolo todo, María del Rosario Galván, operadora política y sexual suprema que un día le dice a su joven amante, Nicolás Valdivia: «Tú serás presidente de México.»

«Te ponen en el pecho la banda tricolor, te sientas en la Silla del Águila y ¡vámonos! Es como si te hubieras subido a la montaña rusa, te sueltan... y haces una mueca que se vuelve tu máscara... la Silla del Águila, es nada más y nada menos que un asiento en la montaña rusa que llamamos La República Mexicana.»
