Author: Juan De Recacoechea
Description: From the author of the best selling book "American Visa" comes this detective novel unraveled through a realistic panorama of La Paz's society. "La Mala Sombra", exposing a biting talent and dark sense of humor, recounts three parallel stories: one of an intellectual trapped inside a distressing family situation, unemployed and forced to accept a job linking him with drug activities. Another story presenting a paraguayan drug dealer, right hand man of the international drug cartels and a final one exposing a simple yet efficient narcotics inspector.
This work describes with mastery the underground movements of the city of La Paz as well as the dull bourgeois social circles. Novel first published in 1980.
