Description

An addictive and nuanced narrative about conflict-rife Colombia.

A boy witnesses a violent confrontation in a remote part of town in the state of Cauca, Colombia. Minutes later, someone arrives at the scene to clear up all trace of the incident. No one in town claims to have heard or seen anything, and yet an anonymous accusation launches a dangerous investigation that unfolds within the corrupt world of the Christian churches of Latin America. A story that urgently reveals inequality and violence that govern an entire country, The Night Will Be Long is a devastatingly humorous thriller that will appeal to fans of Roberto Bolano and Fernanda Melchor’s Hurricane Season.
Santiago Gamboa’s fascinating characters introduce an addictive and nuanced narrative about conflict-rife Colombia.

Publisher Review

"A fascinating, brilliantly dark novel" "Gamboa's talent at cultivating intrigue and the extravagant energy of his stories make him compulsive reading." "An absorbing-at times almost too absorbing-mystery by a notable Colombian author." * Kirkus * "A subtle and energetic thriller; a captivating story in a Colombia that heals its wounds in the best possible way, full of pretty atypical characters." "For my money there may be no more ambitious, accomplished writer than Gamboa at work in international noir today. Gamboa brings a searching, penetrating style to the prose and unwinds a genuinely compelling and provocative story that interrogates the very nature of violence and truth." * Crime Reads *
