Heat and dust and South American passion take the listeners somewhere intense in this compelling story from Nobel prize-winner Garcia Marquez. This is a classic 'why dunnit': a gripping narrative of motive which enables the narrator to directly involve the listener as the chronicle examines the apparent facts.
A small town on the Caribbean coast of Colombia has just celebrated a lavish wedding; the following morning Santiago Nasar drinks his coffee in the kitchen, it is the day that he is going to be killed.
