Summary
An aging detective in decline recounts his attempts to investigate a case in an atmosphere of alchoholism and corruption.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Mujer con sombrero panama es una novela ambiciosa, basada en los topicos del genero negro a los que Edgardo Rodriguez Julia logra dotar de gran originalidad a traves de una exquisita galeria de personajes delirantes; dipsomanos, tullidos, femme fatale y hombres corruptos. El propio narrador de la historia es uno de ellos: una vieja gloria en franco declive del mundo detectivesco. El hecho de que sea el propio sabueso una version del personaje que Harvey Keytel encarnaba en Pulp Fiction, el Senor Lobo, encargado de solucionar los problemas aparentemente mas dificiles, le proporciona a Rodriguez Julia la ocasion de mostrarnos la realidad desde la pura optica de este personaje, de forma que la novela es el resultado de una constante distorsion de una historia que pasa por el filtro de este detective viejo y cada vez mas perdido y degenerado. Mujer con sombrero panama es una novela rica, con una trama intrigante que maneja un lenguaje preciso y habitada por una serie de personajes tragicomicos. Una gran novela negra ambientada en El Caribe. Una novela con mucha fuerza narrativa y de facil lectura.
