About the Author: Gabriel García Márquez

Gabriel José de la Concordia Garcí­a Márquez was a Colombian novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter and journalist. Garcí­a Márquez, familiarly known as "Gabo" in his native country, was considered one of the most significant authors of the 20th century. In 1982, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

He studied at the University of Bogotá and late worked as a reporter for the Colombian newspaper El Espectador and as a foreign correspondent in Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Caracas and New York. He wrote many acclaimed non-fiction works and short stories, but is best-known for his novels, such as One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967) and Love in the Time of Cholera (1985). His works have achieved significant critical acclaim and widespread commercial success, most notably for popularizing a literary style labeled as magical realism, which uses magical elements and events in order to explain real experiences. Some of his works are set in a fictional village called Macondo, and most of them express the theme of solitude.

Maruja Pachon fut enlevée en septembre 1990, en même temps que huit autres personnalités, par le bras armé du cartel de Medellin. A partir des témoignages de ceux qui furent directement ou indirectement mêlés à cette atroce aventure dans laquelle périrent deux otages, Gabriel Garcia Marquez nous entraîne dans un thriller qui a pour cadre la guerre totale déclarée par les narcotrafiquants colombiens à un gouvernement qui avait décidé de les anéantir. Autour de Maruja et de son mari Alberto, gravitent les protagonistes d'une réalité qui dépasse souvent la fiction : les otages et leurs familles, le Président et ses conseillers, confrontés à la folie meurtrière d'un Pablo Escobar omniprésent dans ce drame qui commence comme un fait divers et se déroule comme un grand roman jusqu'à la reddition du plus puissant parrain des temps modernes.
