Noticia De Un Secuestro

A free online copy (and downloadable .pdf).

In a departure from his Nobel prize-winning fiction, Garcia Marquez examines the November 7, 1990, abduction of well-known Colombian journalist Maruja Pachon and her sister-in-law by the “Extraditables,” drug traffickers belonging to the Medellin Cartel. Among others kidnapped were the daughter of an ex-president of Colombia and the son of the owner of El Tiempo, Colombia’s most important newspaper. The kidnappings were meant to force the government to take a stand against the extradition of drug traffickers to the United States. What ensues is a passionate account of the harrowing experiences suffered by the victims and the negotiations undertaken by Pachon’s husband, Alberto Villamizar. A moving, dramatic account on par with the author’s best works. – Jorge Gonzalez
