The winner of Spain's coveted Alfaguara Prize and the UK's Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, Red April is an internationally acclaimed sensation.
The war against the Shining Path is over. Yet when a charred and mutilated body is discovered during Carnival, the people of the small town of Ayacucho understand that death has once more returned to their land. Only now the terror emanates not from the government death squads, nor from the guerrillas in the mountains, but from a single source: a serial murderer. And now everyone is afraid. Everyone is a suspect.
