'On the day they were going to kill him, Santiago Nasar got up at five-thirty in the morning to wait for the boat the bishop was coming on' Santiago Nasar is brutally murdered by two brothers in a small town. All the townspeople knew it was going to happen - including the victim. But nobody did anything to prevent the killing. Twenty-seven years later, a man arrives in town to try and piece together the truth from the contradictory testimonies of the townsfolk. To at last understand what happened to Santiago, and why . . . 'A work of high explosiveness - the proper stuff of Nobel prizes. An exceptional novel that shows how a whole community is to blame for a murder which is dressed up as an affair of honour.' The Times 'A tour de force of moral and emotional complexity.' Angela Carter, Guardian 'A masterpiece.'Evening Standard
