Product Description

Una novela policial, una historia de supervivencia en un mundo donde la lealtad es puro instinto. Por Arturo Pérez-Reverte.

«Nací mestizo, cruce de mastín español y fila brasileña. Cuando cachorro tuve uno de esos nombres tiernos y ridículos que se les ponen a los perrillos recién nacidos, pero de aquello pasó demasiado tiempo. Lo he olvidado. Desde hace mucho todos me llaman Negro.»


Hace días que en el Abrevadero de Margot, donde se reúnen los chuchos del barrio, nada se sabe de Teo y de Boris el Guapo. Sus colegas presienten que detrás de su desaparición hay algo oscuro, siniestro, que los mantiene alerta. Lo ocurrido no puede ser nada bueno; lo sospechan todos y lo sabe su amigo el Negro, luchador retirado con cicatrices en el hocico y en la memoria. Para él es cuestión de instinto, de experiencia sobreviviendo en las situaciones más difíciles. Eso lo lleva a emprender un peligroso viaje al pasado, en busca de sus amigos.

En esta asombrosa novela negra, divertida, tierna y sobrecogedora de principio a fin, Arturo Pérez-Reverte narra con increíble maestría la aventura de un perro en un mundo diferente al de los humanos, donde rigen las mejores reglas -lealtad, inteligencia y compañerismo- y están desterradas toda corrección política o convención social. Un mundo en el que a veces hay clemencia para los inocentes. Y justicia para los culpables.

 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A noir fiction novel, a story of survival in a world where loyalty is pure instinct.

 
"I was born a mestizo, a cross between a Spanish and Brazilian Mastiff. When I was a puppy I had one of those cute and ridiculous names that are given to newborn dogs, but that was too long ago. I've since forgotten it, and for a long time now, everyone calls me Blackie."
 
For days now, nobody at the neighborhood dog gathering place has heard or knows Teo and Boris’ whereabouts. His friends sense that there is something dark and creepy behind their disappearance, and that keeps them on alert. Whatever happened cannot be good; everyone suspects it and their friend Blackie, a retired fighter with scars on his nose and his past, knows it. For him it is a matter of instincts, and that leads him to embark on a dangerous journey to the past, in search of his friends.
 
In this amazing noir fiction novel that is funny, caring, and overwhelming from beginning to end, Arturo Pérez-Reverte narrates with great mastery the adventures of a dog in a world different from the human world, one where the rules that reign are loyalty, intelligence, and camaraderie; a world where sometimes there is mercy for the innocent, and justice for the guilty ones.
