Latest reviews

  • “Set amid the ruling class of Colombia’s drug cartels, this sleek, slick novel (translated from the Spanish) offers a grim assessment of the next generation’s opportunity for escape.”
    — The New York Times Book Review, May 5 2020
  • “This is a lively story of how children are affected by their parents, emphasized by a third narrative strand where Larry and a daughter of Escobar’s strike up a friendship on a plane trip, neither aware of their darker connection.”
    — The Irish Times, Apr 23 2020
  • “A cheerless but supremely well-crafted story that proves Franco to be among the best Latin American writers at work today.”
    — Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review), Jan 27 2020
