In Ayacucho, Peru at the beginning of Holy week in 2000, public prosecutor Felix Chacaltana Saldívar, a lonesome, scared, poetry loving man set in his old traditions, is forced to face the investigation of a horrible murder. The crime is the beginning of a series of mysterious deaths, and through his investigation, the public prosecutor does not discard the responsibility of the terrorist organization Sendereo Luminoso. Little by little, he will have to become familiar with the irregular methods of the police and the Peruvian army, and he soon becomes an undesirable man to all, and a stranger to itself. Abril rojo is a novel about Peru, its history, its symbols, "the orgy of corruption that inundates the country ", and about the war between the army and the Sendero Luminoso during Fujimori’s presidency. This was a war in which Peru was lost, and its population, left in its misery, suffered without understanding. The story develops into a multifaceted plot at an excellent pace where we witness twenty years of brutal violence. Description in Spanish: ¿Qué es lo que hace que la gente agarre un fusil y comience a matarse? El fiscal Félix Chalcatana se ve envuelto en la investigación del primero de una serie de sanguinarios asesinatos. En un Perú amenazado por la guerrilla y los avances militares propios de una afianzada política dictatorial, para el fiscal la línea de investigación apunta hacia un solo camino: Sendero Luminoso. Al ritmo de un intenso thriller, el fiscal va perdiendo la poca inocencia que le quedaba al percatarse de los horrores que puede cometer el ejército y la policía de su país. A lo largo de su investigación, Félix sostiene conversaciones con testigos y elementos clave que, tras haber hablado con él, mueren torturados y asesinados. Hacia el final de la historia la obra presenta dos giros de tuerca que convierten en inocente y víctima a quien la trama apuntaba como culpable y desenmascaran una verdad todavía más perversa con la confesión del Comandante Carrión.
