Don’t Send Flowers

Martín Solares

NOVEL. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2015. 456 PAGES.

Don't Send Flowers tells the story of Carlos Treviño, a former policeman forced to return to the State of Tamaulipas to investigate the disappearance of a wealthy heiress. Beginning in the south of the state, close to Paracuán, he follows the woman's trail through the centre to the devastated northern zones, interviewing the different criminal gangs fighting for control over the roads and cities.

At the same time, he must avoid being caught by the shadowy Comandante Margarito, Chief of Police of La Eternidad, who wants him dead. The rivalry between these two shark-like characters raises the tension to very unhealthy levels across seven gripping days.

The result is a story in which the word ‘justice' is never uttered, a novel even darker than The Black Minutes.

"A cool, perceptive overview of the horror that has taken hold in the Gulf;

the shady network of favours and the extent of the tragedy.

A tough, direct, and exciting novel, essential reading for anyone

looking to set foot in the Gulf area (or Mexico itself)."

Antonio Ortuño
