    DescriptionA man returns to the town where a baffling murder took place 27 years earlier, determined to get to the bottom of the story. Just hours after marrying the beautiful Angela Vicario, everyone agrees, Bayardo San Roman returned his bride in disgrace to her parents. Her distraught family forced her to name her first lover; and her twin brothers announced their intention to murder Santiago Nasar for dishonoring their sister. Yet if everyone knew the murder was going to happen, why did no one intervene to stop it? The more that is learned, the less is understood, and as the story races to its inexplicable conclusion, an entire society--not just a pair of murderers-- is put on trial.

    Review quote
    "Exquisitely harrowing . . . very strange and brilliantly conceived . . .a sort of metaphysical murder mystery."--"The New York Times Book Review" "This investigation of an ancient murder takes on the quality of a hallucinatory exploration, a deep, groping search into the gathering darkness of human intentions for a truth that continually slithers away." -"The New York Review of Books ""Brilliant . . . A small masterpiece . . . we can almost see, smell and hear Garcia Marquez's Caribbean backwater and its inhabitants."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "As pungent and memorable as a sharp spice, an examination of the nature of complicity and fate . . . an exquisite performance." -"The Christian Science Monitor ""A tour de force . . . In prose that is spare yet heavy with meaning, Garcia Marquez gives us not merely a chronicle but a portrait of the town and its collective psyche . . . not merely a family but an entire culture." -"The Washington Post Book World "
