The Brothers Corona is a novel that unfolds like a Sam Shepard story made into a Wim Wenders road movie. It is the first Mexican detective novel that reflects rural Mexican life and culture, showcasing the splendour of its customs and traditions.

The novel unfolds as two revolving stories that eventually intertwine into one. The first is the story of Abel Corona and his three brothers, who are involved in a nasty feud with the neighbouring Alcaraz family. The second story focuses on the journey that the young Abel Corona undertakes to search for his girlfriend by catching a ride from a truck driver who is involved in the drug trade. When he steals money from the driver, Abel starts fearing for his life. Then his brother Ismael is found dead and Abel is confronted with an old family feud: a fight over land ending in death. Is he being lured into a trap, to fall victim to revenge?

Portraying ranch life across the great expanse of northern and western Mexico, Guedea dazzles the reader with numerous subplot lines and sequences of Abel's journey. The novel doesn't hold back and it's inventive, honest and often beautifully brutal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This novel brings a fresh and modern perspective to a genre of Latin-American, Mexican, and Mexican-American novels and family stories. Not only are the characters well-developed, but the story itself contains the meaning, which unravels page by page into what becomes a very complex saga. This is definitely an important work of fiction.
Daniel Chac?n, author of "Hotel Juarez: Stories, Rooms and Loops""
