About this item

Al fin y al cabo, era el Rey. El señor Gustavo Rey. Lo decían sus amigos. Lo decían los periodistas." Buscar el amor en una ciudad de ciertas clases y costumbres puede ser un ejercicio cruel. En su gimnasia erótica habitual, Gustavo esperaba encontrar todo menos la felicidad en una amante. Lali, su esposa, puede tolerar ciertas aventuras siempre y cuando no quiebren la rutina marital de una pareja de alta sociedad. Mientras cada uno de ellos hace las apuestas necesarias para conseguir lo que anhela, les será inevitable transgredir la tenue línea que divide la felicidad de la desgracia, como un recordatorio de que ceder a las exigencias de nuestra personalidad es también una manera de configurar nuestro destino. Alonso Cueto ha escrito una vibrante novela sobre los deseos bajo la premisa de que toda búsqueda emocional es también una narración policial. En este caso, la detective se llama Sonia y los interrogatorios ocurren en una ciudad violenta en la que el amor puede ser una mercancía liquidada al mejor postor, o también, un fantasma que nunca deja de husmear en las habitaciones de la memoria.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONHe was Gustavo Rey after all, a sort of king is what his friends would say. To search for love in a city filled with various social classes and different customs can be a cruel exercise. During his regular ****** twists and turns, Gustavo thought he would find anything except the happiness that a lover would bring him. Lali, his wife, was willing forgive any infidelities as long as they didn’t interfere with the daily routine of a high society couple. While each of them were separately in search of their own happiness, they won’t be able to avoid crossing the fine line between happiness and misfortune, like a reminder that giving into our own demands is also a way to mold our destiny.Alonso Cueto has written this vibrant novel about desire, whose premise is that any search for love can also be a police thriller. In this case, its lead detective is Sonia, and the witness questioning occurs in a violent city in which love is a form of currency for the best bidder, but also, a ghost who is constantly peeping into ones’ memories.
