A Sweet Smell of Deathcomes from the body of a naked young woman who is found murdered one morning in a remote Mexican village. This is a fiercely human story of how all the villagers gradually become involved in the hunt to discover the murderer and avenge the brutal slaying. It is a story of forbidden love - love that pushes the main characters to the edge of the abyss and drags them inexorably to fulfil their tragic destiny. Influenced by William Faulkner and Paul Auster, Arriaga has woven a complex narrative of the terrible cost of love.
