Synopsis: A man from Lima’s aristocracy appears dead in the middle of the street, with a bullet through his heart. While the conjectures start piling up around him, the narrator -nephew of the victim- decides to investigate who the killer could be. Then the secrets of his uncle’s life emerge: his secret romance, his hidden past, his true relationship with his family. In this search not only will truth regarding the crime come to light, but also the victim’s dealings with his relations. The Revenge of Silence is a detective story set in the refined halls and corridors of a large house, where the family’s past walks confined to its walls. The interior geography of this house appears to be a decisive factor in the conduct of its members. The Revenge of Silence retells the story of a trip towards darkness, an exploration of the mysteries of a family, the last great religion of our time.
