Reviews

"Remarkable...[The Informers] is the best work of literary fiction to come my way since 2005...and into the bargain it is immensely entertaining, with twists and turns of plot that yield great satisfaction."
-Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

"[A] straight-ahead, old-fashioned narrative... [T]he career of Juan Gabriel Vßsquez...is off to a notable start."
-The New York Times

"To read The Informers is to enjoy the shock of new talent... [Vßsquez's] novel is subtle, surprising and deeply pleasurable, with razors secreted among its pages."
-The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Unlike anything written by his Latin American contemporaries...The Informers deserves to be read...[O]ne of this year's outstanding books."
-The Financial Times
