Death is an Old Story

Hernán Rivera Letelier

NOVEL. ALFAGUARA, 2015. 209 PAGES.

A rapist is attacking women in the Antofagasta cemetery. The victims say they were dragged into a tomb by a man with a terrifying voice who reeks of death. Tira Gutiérrez, the only private investigator in the city who up until now has only worked on infidelity cases, is hired to find the guilty party. Gutiérrez is a former miner who got his detective certificate from a correspondence course: after losing his job he decided to dedicate himself to his secret passion; solving crimes. In this case, he is assisted by Sister Tegualda, a young nun who has more sensuality and deduction skills underneath her habit than even she suspects.  

With Death is an Old Story, Rivera Letelier presents an original tone and language to bring to life a detective novel set in contemporary Antofagasta.
