Summary
A plague has brought death to the city. Two feuding crime families with blood on their hands need our hard-boiled hero, The Redeemer, to broker peace. Both his instincts and the vacant streets warn him to stay indoors, but The Redeemer ventures out into the city s underbelly to arrange for the exchange of the bodies they hold hostage. Yuri Herrera s novel is a response to the violence of contemporary Mexico. With echoes of Romeo and Juliet, Roberto Bolano and Raymond Chandler, "The Transmigration of Bodies" is a noirish tragedy and a tribute to those bodies loved, sanctified, lusted after, and defiled that violent crime has touched --
