Amazon.com description: Product Description:
En Medellín, una de las ciudades más violentas de la tierra, un Ángel Exterminador recorre las calles "limpiándolas" de una buena parte de sus habitantes, y librando, de paso, al narrador de lo que parece molestarlo más: el prójimo. Alexis, el ángel, es un chiquillo de las barriadas, un "sicario" o asesino a sueldo, sin padre y sin ley. Poseído por el misticismo de la destrucción, su vida avanza sobre charcos de sangre. Y en tanto las iglesias, mudos testimonios de una religiosidad antigua, se vacían de fieles, la morgue se llena de cadáveres. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION It is stranger than fiction and worst than a horror movie. Set in Medellín, La Virgen de los Sicarios is a shout of protest against the violence destroying Colombia. The protagonist, Fernando, has a lover who is killed, and Fernando unwittingly takes up with the youngster who did the killing. The killings typical of the real Medellín are taken to the absurd in a dark, sharp book that blames the church and the political elite for Colombia’s tragedy.
