Aguliar returns home after a four-day business trip to discover that his beloved wife has gone mad. Desperate to rescue Agustina from her sudden, devastating insanity, Aguliar delves back into her shadowy past. Other narratives are intertwined with his frantic search for the truth; that of Midas, a flamboyant drug-trafficker and Agustina's former lover, and Agustina's splintered memories of her own troubled childhood. The key to her madness lies buried deep in a Colombian story of money, power and corruption.

«Pampa y política, tiempos muertos de vida cotidiana y diálogos muy vivos, con un trasfondo crítico lleno de suspenso en el que la rabia fecunda es compatible con el humor más fresco.» Del acta del jurado del Premio Alfaguara de novela 2016 Una novela de Eduardo Sacheri, autor de El secreto de sus ojos, que inspiró la película ganadora del Oscar. En un pueblo perdido de la provincia de Buenos Aires, muchas cosas están a punto de extinguirse. Durante la crisis económica de 2001 que desembocó en el corralito bancario, un grupo de vecinos se propone reunir el dinero necesario para llevar a cabo un proyecto que podría ser una salida de la decadencia y la pobreza. Pero en medio de la incautación general de los ahorros, sufren una estafa particular que los decide a recuperar lo perdido. En esta novela Eduardo Sacheri narra la historia de esa merecida revancha de los perdedores, consumada en una noche legendaria y secreta que quedará en el recuerdo. En un país sin justicia solo queda la revancha. «Pampa y política, tiempos muertos de vida cotidiana y diálogos muy vivos, con un trasfondo crítico lleno de suspenso en el que la rabia fecunda es compatible con el humor más fresco.» Del acta del jurado del XIX Premio Alfaguara, presidido por Carme Riera y compuesto por Michi Strausfeld, Carlos Zanón, Sara Mesa, Mercedes Corbillón y Pilar Reyes. La crítica ha dicho... «[...]el nuevo libro de Eduardo Sacheri es un desahogo, un reparador y oportuno suspiro que llena de oxígeno el alma de los perdedores. El gol del honor, que le dicen.» Jorge Londero, La voz del interior Sobre el autor: «Sacheri logra como pocos darle una proyección universal a las historias que cuenta. Historias de gente común donde lo cotidiano se vuelve épico.» Juan José Campanella «El argentino Eduardo Sacheri hace de las historias cotidianas lecturas conmovedoras, de los lugares comunes situaciones universales.» Rocío Huerta, El País «Es la presencia de Sacheri en los guiones lo que hace que las películas de Campanella tengan un importante toque de humor, un humor muy de Buenos Aires, rápido y algo negro.» Soledad Gallego-Díaz, El País Sobre El secreto de sus ojos: «Resulta una delicia la lectura de esta novela en la que todo sucede como estallidos entre la cotidianidad, la rutina y el sosiego.» Luis Alonso Girgado, Diario de Ferrol (España) «El valor, la lealtad, la crueldad y la venganza: Sacheri socava astutamente nuestras suposiciones acerca de las respuestas humanas fundamentales en una novela que es profundamente política y compasiva.» Anna Mundow, The Barnes & Noble Review (Estados Unidos) «Sacheri nos dice todo sin adornos, sin desvíos, sin falsa complacencia. Los hechos, nada más que los hechos incuestionables y fríos. [...] Hábilmente, el autor plantea también una pregunta difícil: ¿cuál es la legitimidad de la venganza? Una gran novela que sería abusivo colocar bajo la etiqueta de novela policial. Es mucho más que eso.» Geneviève Pieckarczyk, Encre Noir (Bélgica)

From one of the world's most expert art critics, the incredible true story--part art history and part mystery--of a Velázquez portrait that went missing and the obsessed nineteenth-century bookseller determined to prove he had found it. When John Snare, a nineteenth-century provincial bookseller, traveled to a liquidation auction, he stumbled on a vivid portrait of King Charles I that defied any explanation. The Charles of the painting was young--too young to be king--and yet also too young to be painted by the Flemish painter to which the work was attributed. Snare had found something incredible--but what? His research brought him to Diego Velázquez, whose long-lost portrait of Prince Charles has eluded art experts for generations. Velázquez (1599-1660) was the official painter of the Madrid court, during the time the Spanish Empire teetered on the edge of collapse. When Prince Charles of England--a man wealthy enough to help turn Spain's fortunes--ventured to the court to propose a marriage with a Spanish princess, he allowed just a few hours to sit for his portrait. Snare believed only Velázquez could have met this challenge. But in making his theory public, Snare was ostracized, victim to aristocrats and critics who accused him of fraud, and forced to choose, like Velázquez himself, between art and family. A thrilling investigation into the complex meaning of authenticity and the unshakable determination that drives both artists and collectors of their work, The Vanishing Velázquez travels from extravagant Spanish courts in the 1700s to the gritty courtrooms and auction houses of nineteenth-century London and New York. But it is above all a tale of mystery and detection, of tragic mishaps and mistaken identities, of class, politics, snobbery, crime, and almost farcical accident. It is a magnificently crafted page-turner, a testimony to how and why great works of art can affect us to the point of obsession.

From the best-selling author of The Secret in Their Eyes, an adventure about friendship, soccer, and good humor When Alejandro “Mono” dies of cancer, his brother and two closest friends, a tight-knit group since childhood, are left to figure out how to take care of his young daughter, Guadalupe. They want to give her all the love they felt for Mono and secure her future, but there isn’t a single peso left in the bank. Mono invested all of his money in a promising soccer player whose talents haven't panned out, and the three hundred thousand dollars Mono spent on his transfer is soon to be lost for good. How do you sell a forward who can’t score a goal? How do you negotiate in a world whose rules you don’t know? How do you maintain relationships when repeated failures create fissures in lifelong loyalties? Fernando, Mauricio, and Ruso pool the few resources in their arsenal to come up with strategies—from harebrained to inspired—in their desperate attempt to recoup Mono’s investment for Guadalupe. Following the lives of four distinct characters, who, despite their great differences, still manage to find solace and pride in one another, Papers in the Wind is a tribute to friendship and proof that love and humor can triumph over sadness.

This international bestseller inspired the must-watch drama on USA Network starring Alice Braga as Teresa Mendoza. From “master of the intellectual thriller” Arturo Pérez-Reverte, a remarkable tale, spanning decades and continents—from the dusty streets of Mexico to the sparkling waters off the coast of Morocco, to the Strait of Gibraltar and Spain—in a story encompassing sensuality and cruelty, love and betrayal, and life and death. Few authors inspire the kind of passion that Arturo Pérez-Reverte does. Reviewers, readers, and booksellers alike have embraced his fiction as the perfect blend of suspense and literary ambition. A global bestseller, he is one of the most admired and widely read authors in the world. And this stunning novel is his best yet. Teresa Mendoza's boyfriend is a drug smuggler who the narcos of Sinaloa, Mexico, call "the king of the short runway," because he can get a plane full of coke off the ground in three hundred yards. But in a ruthless business, life can be short, and Teresa even has a special cell phone that Guero gave her along with a dark warning. If that phone rings, it means he's dead, and she'd better run, because they're coming for her next. Then the call comes. In order to survive, she will have to say goodbye to the old Teresa, an innocent girl who once entrusted her life to a pinche narco smuggler. She will have to find inside herself a woman who is tough enough to inhabit a world as ugly and dangerous as that of the narcos-a woman she never before knew existed. Indeed, the woman who emerges will surprise even those who know her legend, that of the Queen of the South. From the Trade Paperback edition.
