The Sound of Things Falling

by Juan Gabriel Vásquez - £7.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408831618 | ISBN 10: 1408831619

No sooner does he get to know Ricardo Laverde in a seedy billiard hall in Bogotá than Antonio Yammara realises that the ex-pilot has a secret. Antonio's fascination with his new friend's life grows until the day Ricardo receives a mysterious, unmarked cassette. Shortly afterwards, he is shot dead on a street corner.
 
Yammara's investigation into what happened leads back to the early 1960s, marijuana smuggling and a time before the cocaine trade trapped Colombia in a living nightmare.
