Product Description

A hacker breaks into the Vatican's system. A baroque church in Seville kills to protect itself. A beautiful Andalusian aristocrat, a handsome priest/agent who handles the Church's dirty work, a jealous banker and his gambling secretary, a seventy-year-old woman who only drinks coke, a postcard from a woman dead a hundred years ago, and the mysterious legacy of Xaloc-the last Spanish privateer, who vanished from the Cuban coast in 1898-are the building blocks for this ingenious, complex and fascinating novel. Description in Spanish: Un pirata informatico que se infiltra en el Vaticano. Una iglesia barroca, en Sevilla, que mata para defenderse. Tres pintorescos malvados que aspiran a mantener viva la copla espanola. Una bella aristocrata andaluza. Un apuesto sacerdote-agente especialista en asuntos sucios. Un banquero celoso y su secretario ludopata. Una septuagenaria que bebe coca-cola. La tarjeta postal de una mujer muerta un siglo atras. Y el misterioso legado del capitan Xaloc, ultimo corsario espanol, desaparecido frente a las costas de Cuba en 1898. Con esos ingredientes, Arturo Perez-Reverte construye en La piel del tambor una ingeniosa, compleja y fascinante trama novelesca. Con su imaginacion desbordante, su espectacular dominio de la ingenieria narrativa y de los diversos generos superpuestos -misterio, policiaco, historia, romanticismo, aventura, folletin- el autor nos sumerge sin aliento en una historia que corta al lector cualquier posible retirada, arrastrandolo a un enigma cuya clave se esconde a la sombra de los viejos muelles del Guadalquivir; donde todavia hoy, en las noches de luna llena, sombras de mujer agitan sus panuelos y goletas tripuladas por fantasmas siguen zarpando rumbo a las Antillas.
