What happens if your hierarchical superior orders a report from you?
delicate and compromising, which will define the tender of a port? A plot of conflicting interests, a dangerous business of death and environmental crime
will put at risk the sense of ethics and physical integrity of Lía, the protagonist.
A novel with the ingredients of the noir genre: intrigue, social criticism, action. A protagonist who is immersed in the world of crime, in an inconvenient relationship, in hers her own fears and her rage, a narrative in which there is humor and irony, violence and desire for revenge, a vision criticism of the unstoppable scourge of corruption, of the thin line that separates us all from immorality.

La muerte tendrá tus ojos was originally published in 2008, when it won the top award in Uruguay, the National Literature Prize. This new edition, thoroughly revised, represent the first instalment of a new series.
