Cenido a la trama de novela negra y escrita con un humor corrosiva y delirante que no respeta instituciones ni aureolas de santidad, Enrique Serna nos ofrece en El Miedo a los Animales una radiografia deliciosa y cruel de una elite corrompida por su afan de supremacia, el atributo que hermana a los hombres de letras con los politicos y las fieras.
Changing names for protection, former news reporter Enrique Serna, intrigued by the idea of contributing to the Mexican justice system, became a member of an organization much like America's FBI: the PGR. With danger at every turn, Serna decided to take pen to hand. Unveiling some disturbing realities about the grotesquely corrupt Mexican police, he has proven that in this case, "The pen is mightier than the sword".
I needed to pick up some legal and police vocabulary in Spanish so I chose this book. I wasn't disappointed. I really enjoyed this book and picked up a lot of vocabulary in the process. The guilty person is right in front of you from the beginning, but it's very difficult to guess who it could be.
