9789582401412: La Virgen de los Sicarios Our Lady of the Assassins (Spanish edition) (Alfaguara Hispanica)

Stranger than fiction. More terrible than a horror movie. Harder to believe than anything presented by Ripley. Medellin was, not so long ago, a provincial capital in the Colombian Andes, a large town of hard-working, conservative, religious folk. The native returns after years away and simply describes what he sees, in the new language of the street, spoken by the teenage hitmen devoted to their mothers and to the Virgin.

Blurb in Spanish:
"Un bello y delirante canto de amor y perdición" que narra el Medellín de hoy día, el vértigo de sus calles atestadas de desempleados y mendigos, ladrones y asesinos. Una sociedad en que la impunidad es la norma y la violencia el aire que se respira.
