About the Book

4th May 2012....The collapse of a coastal city and a convention centre. Nine ecology experts entrapped in the debris… & a perfect crime! A murder in the midst of chaos that the media monitors, believing, it is the rescue efforts that reality TV is showcasing. But the debris becomes the final resting place of a passionate drama in a bourgeois Peruvian family as events unfold, bringing forth the complexity of human nature. A gripping tale of heroism and survival, against the backdrop of our worst nightmares of an environmental apocalypse, vividly brought to life. A captivating narrative by a professor-politician in a portrayal that is innovative and stylishly contemporary, heralding an exciting genre of environmental and multicultural literature in Latin America.
