(Red April). In Ayacucho, on Easter 2000, the public prosecutor Félix Chacaltana Saldívar has to deal with the ins and outs of a most bloody murder. When presidential elections are to be held shortly and it is said that “in this country no terrorism comes from the higher places”, Chacaltana does not rule out a Sendero Luminoso connection. The killing is the first of a series of puzzling deaths. Chacaltana, who has never done anything unlawful, must now follow the doubtful methods used by policemen and the Peruvian army. Little by little he becomes an objectionable person as well as someone who can hardly recognise himself.
