Synopsis: The body of a young girl is found floating in water in what seems to be a profane ritual, an intent to recreate the death scene of Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Whoever ce-lebrated it, has tried to honor and compensate the vic-tim by washing away the obscure and evidently cruel circumstances of her death ¿Or was he really washing away evidence to cover up for the assassin?With a profound, personal writing style, Laura Restrepo unveils the dark background lurking behind this episode, and reveals the ostentatious, flashy world of five young men, rich and successful professionals, bound together since childhood in a mischievous brotherhood they call the Tutti Frutti.On the absolute opposite end of the young men's univer-se, their victim, an adolescent girl, lives on the outskirts of the city among her people, emigrants who have fled from the war and violence consuming their former rural enviroment.Fictional reinvention of a true crime, The Divine Ones unfolds as a moving but disturbing indictment of femicide and a haunting new novel from one of Latin America's best loved authors.
