"In Evil Hour" is the thrilling story of a Colombian society menaced by rumour and paranoia by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of the "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Love in the Time of Cholera". As a small South American town sweats under an oppressive heat, an unknown person creeps through the night sticking malicious posters to walls and doors. When the contents of one poster lead to a murder, everyone knows that the town is threatened by a malevolent presence - but is there anything that the mayor, the doctor or the priest can do about it? ""In Evil Hour" was the book which was to inspire my own career as a novelist. I owe my writing voice to that one book!" (Jim Crace). "Belongs to the very best of Marquez's work...should on no account be missed." ("Financial Times"). "A splendid achievement." ("The Times"). As one of the pioneers of magic realism and perhaps the most prominent voice of Latin American literature, Gabriel Garcia Marquez has received international recognition for his novels, works of non-fiction and collections of short stories. Those published in translation by Penguin include "Autumn of the Patriarch", "Bon Voyage Mr. President", "Chronicle of a Death Foretold", "Collected Stories", "The General in his Labyrinth", "Innocent Erendira and Other Stories", "Leaf Storm", "Living to Tell the Tale", "Love in the Time of Cholera", "Memories of My Melancholy Whores", "News of a Kidnapping", "No-one Writes to the Colonel", "Of Love and Other Demons", "The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor" and "Strange Pilgrims".
