Lo que tarda en morir un idiota
J M Aguilar
Consciente de lo extraño del comportamiento del homicida, el fiscal encargado del caso pide ayuda al psicólogo forense Manuel Artacho que, partiendo del análisis de la conducta, comienza a desenredar un misterio donde el pasado y la banalidad del mal son los protagonistas.
Manuel Artacho transitará por las diferentes expresiones del dolor psicológico y físico, al tener que enfrentarse a una de las más devastadoras muestras de la crueldad humana, agarrándose para no sucumbir a la desesperanza en la cotidianidad, en la belleza gastada de lo que le rodea y en la reconfortante sensación de elaborar distintos platos de cocina que comparte con sus lectores para que éstos, si lo desean, puedan unirlos a las recetas que les brindaron Carvalho o Montalbano.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lo que tarda en morir un idiota. (How Long It Takes an Idiot To Die) Aguilar, J. M. Spain/U.S.: Suma de letras: Santillana. 2009. 345p. ISBN 978-84-8365-081-3. pap. $22.99. SUSPENSE Manuel Artacho, a forensic psychologist, is contacted to help interpret the personality of a brutal and atypical killer whose evil actions lack an apparent motive. As he unravels the mystery of the assassin’s persona, Artacho himself confronts danger, and experiences firsthand physical and psychological pain. Detailed descriptions of dehumanizing, violent acts provoke feelings of fear, and the investigation reveals the powerful world of criminal gangs, such as Mara Salvatrucha (a.k.a. MS-13), whose activities include drug smuggling, arms and human trafficking, home invasions, and contract killings. To keep a semblance of “normal” quotidian life, Artacho enthusiastically shows his love for gastronomy, as he shares with the reader different recipes and dishes. Aguilar’s background (he’s a psychologist by training) is evident as he demonstrates through his characters his understanding of human conduct. This debut noir thriller includes all the ingredients of hardboiled crime fiction and will surely rank high within the genre. Recommended for public and academic libraries, and for aficionados of detective narrative.—Liliana Wendorff, Univ. of North Carolina at Pembroke
