When a biography he wrote about a family friend is scathingly reviewed by his own father, Gabriel Santoro investigates the source of his father's wrath, which is finally brought to light years later after his father's suspicious death.
October 5, 2009 Gabriel hasn't spoken to his father since the senior writer's review proclaiming his son's first book a failure. When impending heart surgery reunites the men, generational tensions surface along with WWII-era intrigue in Juan Gabriel Vasquez's inventive and intricately plotted The Informers.
