Praise for Santiago Gamboa

“Gamboa’s talent at cultivating intrigue and the extravagant energy of his stories make him compulsive reading.”
Times Literary Supplement

“Brilliantly translated, Night Prayers is an incredible reading experience with a pounding heart and wisdom to boot.”
—Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore

“Gamboa’s work calls to mind Roberto Bolaño in its masterful suspense, complex literary references, and frank depiction of violence, sex, and drugs.”
—Publisher’s Weekly 

“Gamboa’s storytelling impresses.”
—The Complete Review

“Gamboa’s strength is an apparently inexhaustible stream of narriative invention, an addictive ‘and then, and then’ quality that, at its best, erupts into flourishes of breathtaking poetry.”
—Shelf Awareness 

“Each novel by Santiago Gamboa is at the forefront of the best Latin American novels. Gamboa dismantles the legacy of Chandler and Hammett, adapting it to the craggy environs of Colombia, and adds to it a tireless sense of ethics. His novels revitalize a genre that we thought could do no more.”
—Martín Solares, author of The Black Minutes

“This novel stands on its own as a masterwork of storytelling.”
Publishers Weekly about Necropolis

“A work that is by turns tender, farcical, explicit, bombastic and never less than engrossing.”
The Irish Times about Necropolis
