Overview


Writer-turned-murderer Javier Garcés has come back to eliminate Alma Rossi, the woman he loves. She has fled south taking his car and his money. As he tracks her, covering the seemingly endless miles that take him to Chile, and as he bids his time and remembers her, his addiction to killing leads him to continue his “cleaning” crusade—this time against his old Chilean enemies. Two TV executives, one incompetent, the other corrupt; two writers, one reborn as a decadent TV host, the other a vain militant fag; and a wealthy heir addicted to operating table, are next five targets Javier Garcés plans on exterminating. His improvised crimes are, paradoxically, as horrendous as they are entertaining. But not all of them will die by his hand, and a new, unexpected victim, will even come into play. In El misterio de Alma Rossi, the second installment in the Morirás mañana trilogy—like El escritor sale a matar—our main character sets out to continue settling scores. This time, however, the killing spree is not limited to the literary circles but makes its way to the field of television. Once again, Jaime Bayly exploits his unique style to display before our eyes an exaggerated and grotesque reality, and to relate an intense story, where the main character, maybe his own alter ego, seems condemned to exist caught between his desire to live and his desire to destroy.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The hinge volume of Jaime Bayly's Alma Rossi novels finds the title character still on the run, desperately trying to stay at least one step ahead of serial killer Javier Garcés. While he waits to find her, the former writer keeps himself destructively occupied by nullifying his old Chilean nemeses. His hit lists include television executives, writers, and a one wealthy heir. Was serial killer ever this compelling?
