Annotation "When the mutilated body of Mayra Cabral de Melo, a well-known stripper, is found by the side of a dusty road, detective Edgar "Lefty" Mendieta has personal reasons for bringing the culprit to justice. Mayra had no shortage of ardent, deluded, and downright dangerous admirers, and Lefty himself is haunted by one steamy night he spent in her generous company. So begins an investigation that will bring him ever closer to the murderous world of the narcos, who are waging a war of bloody attrition against the Mexican state. The country is a powder keg, waiting for a spark, and Mendieta is about to enter the darkest days of his life. Corrupt politicians, failed boxers, and unscrupulous arms dealers all lie in wait along the path to justice. But none of this can prepare him for his run-in with the F.B.I., when the father of the President of the United States is attacked while on vacation in Mexico. For all these perils it is the weight of his own murky past that Lefty finds hardest to bear. And as he scratches around for clues, faced with a gallery of suspects who all have a motive and none of whom is a stranger to the dark arts of murder, the reappearance of Samantha Valdés, now the boss of the Cartel del Pacífico, adds one more jagged piece to an already unsolvable puzzle." -- Provided by publisher. -- Unrated. Commercial audiobook. Spanish language.
"El detective Edgar "El Zurdo" Mendieta regresa, esta vez comisionado para investigar el asesinato de Mayra Cabral de Melo, una bailarina de prostíbulo a la que le han mutilado un pezón. La investigación lo forzará a adentrarse aún más en el mundo del narcotráfico, que ha iniciado una guerra contra el Estado mexicano. El país es un polvorín. El Zurdo se encontrará con políticos oscuros, un boxeador fracasado y una reserva de caza donde el padre del presidente de Estados Unidos ha sido atacado. Vivirá los días más oscuros de su vida, enfrentándose al FBI, al contrabando de armas y a un pasado tortuoso que no lo deja en paz. Samantha Valdés, ahora líder del Cártel del Pacífico, se reencuentra con El Zurdo, cerrando el círculo de sus peligrosas conexiones. En este enigmático rompecabezas, Mendieta empezará a vislumbrar la resolución del asesinato de Mayra." -- Proporcionada por la editorial. -- Sin calificación. Audiolibro comercial.
