Delirio por Laura Restrepo

Aguilar regresa a casa después de un corto viaje de negocios y encuentra que su esposa Agustina ha enloquecido completamente. Con el fin de ayudarla a salir de la crisis empieza a investigar, solo para descubrir lo poco que sabe sobre las profundas perturbaciones escondidas en el pasado de la mujer que ama.

Both a gripping detective story and a passionate, devastating tale of eros and insanity in Colombia that delves into the minds of  Agustina, a beautiful woman from an upper-class family who is caught in the throes of madness; her husband Aguilar, a man passionately in love with his wife and determined to rescue her from insanity; Agustina's former lover Midas, a drug-trafficker and money-launderer; and Nicolás, Agustina's grandfather. A searing portrait of a society battered by war and corruption, as well as an intimate look at the daily lives of people struggling to stay sane in an unstable reality.
