Reviews

Praise for Santiago Gamboa
"Gamboa's strength is an apparently inexhaustible stream of narriative invention, an addictive 'and then, and then' quality that, at its best, erupts into flourishes of breathtaking poetry."
- S"helf Awareness"
"Each novel by Santiago Gamboa is at the forefront of the best Latin American novels. Gamboa dismantles the legacy of Chandler and Hammett, adapting it to the craggy environs of Colombia, and adds to it a tireless sense of ethics. His novels revitalize a genre that we thought could do no more."
- Martin Solares, author of "The Black Minutes"
Praise for Gamboa's "Necropolis
""This novel stands on its own as a masterwork of storytelling." - "Publishers Weekly"
"A work that is by turns tender, farcical, explicit, bombastic and never less than engrossing."
- "The Irish Times""
"Gamboa s wide-ranging plot lines keep the reader moving at a rapid pace."
