Annotation "When a biologist returns to Colombia after fifteen years abroad, he quickly becomes entangled in the trappings of his past and his increasingly bizarre present: the unsolved murder of his brother, a boarding school where girls give birth to strange creatures, a chance encounter with his irrevocably changed first love. A brush with a well-connected acquaintance leads to a biotechnology job offer, and he's gradually drawn into a web of conspiracy. Ultimately, he may be destined to remain in the city he'd hoped never to see again-in The Devil of the Provinces, nothing is as it seems." -- Provided by publisher. -- Some violence and some strong language. Spanish language.
"Un hombre vuelve a casa (a Colombia), con varios fracasos a sus espaldas. Y allí «encontrará sin buscar», siguiendo el dicho picassiano. El tejido de araña de la realidad lo atrapará sin darle oportunidad de escapar. Es ésta una novela negra muy singular, donde se dinamitan con acierto muchos de los estereotipos del género." -- Proporcionada por la editorial. -- Contiene algo de lenguaje ofensivo y algunas descripciones de violencia.
