"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."
So begins what truly is a chronicle of a death foretold, an entire town aware, yet no one is able to stop it. Expect extravagant weddings, a picturesque setting of a Colombian town and bizarre suspense as the story unravels.
"Richly sardonic… One could not find a more vivid caricature of that lethal blend of machismo, braggadocio, and hypertrophic sense of honor that sullies South American society."
- John Fowles
