Synopsis: Few things in the life of Plutarco Elias Calles remain a mystery. While occupying the Presidency, he conspired, or ordered, the assassinations of Francisco Serrano, Father Agustin Pro, and Alvaro Obregon (among others). He established the P.N.R., the political party we currently know as P.R.I., and became the engine behind the presidential chair, a post he intended on keeping indefinitely. He was exiled by President Lazaro Cardenas in 1935 and returned to Mexico a decade later, to die. What is not commonly known, and is precisely the subject of this disquieting work, is the fact that Elias Calles participated in seances. Ignacio Solares takes us to the secret side of Elias Calles, a world inhabited by the ghosts of those he had killed. It is in conversations with these ghosts that we realize the terrifying consequences of falling in love with power.

Spanish Description: Muy pocas cosas no se saben acerca de Plutarco Elias Calles, y las que se cuentan son muchas veces atroces. Desde la Presidencia de la Republica conspiro o dio ordenes directas en los asesinatos de Francisco Serrano, el padre Agustin Pro y de Alvaro Obregon (entre otros), fundo el PNR, partido que actualmente conocemos como PRI, se convirtio en el poder detras de la silla presidencial y pretendio conservarlo indefinidamente, fue exiliado practicamente a bayoneta calada por el presidente Lazaro Cardenas en 1935 y regreso al pais diez anos despues, tan solo para morir. De lo que casi no se sabe, y eso es la inquietante materia central de esta novela, es que Elias Calles asistio a sesiones espiritistas. Ignacio Solares nos lleva al mundo secreto de Elias Calles, donde lo acosan los fantasmas de aquellos a quienes mando dar muerte y a traves de sus conversaciones con ellos entendemos lo terrible que es enamorarse del poder.
