Vuelve el maestro del True Crime, David Grann, tras el xito de Z, la ciudad perdida. Entre estas incre bles historias de cr menes reales, destaca El viejo y la pistola , ltima pel cula protagonizada por Robert Redford. La incre ble historia del ladr n de bancos Forrest Tucker da ...t tulo a esta colecci n de cr menes reales, tres relatos en los que el periodista David Grann demuestra por qu es considerado el mejor escritor de no-ficci n del momento. Si El viejo y la pistola es la historia de un artista del atraco y la fuga carcelaria que a sus setenta y muchos a os se niega a retirarse, True Crime sigue la retorcida investigaci n de un polic a polaco convencido de que un novelista dej pistas en su obra sobre un asesinato real. El camale n relata c mo un impostor franc s asume la identidad de un chico desaparecido en Texas y se infiltra en su familia para terminar pregunt ndose qui n est enga ando a qui n. Con estos tres personajes, Grann muestra que la ficci n no es la nica v a para encontrar historias delirantes donde el enga o, la astucia y una innata habilidad para el crimen determinan el futuro de sus protagonistas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Now a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek, The Old Man and the Gun is here joined by two other riveting true-crime tales. The Old Man and the Gun is the incredible story of a bank robber and prison escape artist who modeled himself after figures like Pretty Boy Floyd and who, even in his seventies, refuses to retire. True Crime follows the twisting investigation of a Polish detective who suspects that a novelist planted clues in his fiction to an actual murder. And The Chameleon recounts how a French imposter assumes the identity of a missing boy from Texas and infiltrates the boy's family, only to soon wonder whether he is the one being conned. In this mesmerizing collection, David Grann shows why he has been called a worthy heir to Truman Capote and simply the best narrative nonfiction writer working today, as he takes the reader on a journey through some of the most intriguing and gripping real-life tales from around the world.
