México acribillado: una novela histórica en cuatro actos
Nineteen shots. One murderer. In his most recent novel, Francisco Martín Moreno probes into the circumstances surrounding Álvaro Obregón's assassination, including the list of related murders and the Church's compromising position in these events. Backed by meticulous and thorough investigation, this revealing historical novel, brimming with action, intrigue, and yes, love, finally exposes the information that has been carefully concealed for 80 years.
According to the official version, president Álvaro Obregón was shot to death by José de León Toral. Autopsy findings, however, established 13 entrance wounds and 6 exit wounds made by different bullet calibers. Did the shooter use 6 different guns? Or were there in reality 6 different shooters? To complicate matters even more, all potential witnesses to the homicide died under suspicious circumstances or were murdered in the few months that followed that tragic 7th of July in 1928. The list of suspects includes President Plutarco Elías Calles, Luis N. Morones, founder of the CROM (Mexico's largest labor federation), the renowned Mexican abbess Madre Conchita, and other obscure high-ranking men within Mexican clergy.
