General Note
Translation of: Mexican Gothic.
"Tras recibir una extrąa carta de su prima recǐn casada, Noem̕ Taboada se dirige a High Place, una casa en el campo en M̌xico, sin saber qǔ encontrar̀ all̕. Noem̕ no parece tener dotes de salvadora: es glamurosa, m̀s acostumbrada a asistir a c̤cteles que a las tareas de detective. Pero tambǐn es fuerte, inteligente y no tiene miedo: ni del nuevo marido de su prima, un ingľs amenazante y seductor; ni de su padre, el antiguo patriarca que parece fascinado por Noem̕; ni de la casa, que empieza a invadir los suęos de Noem̕ con visiones de sangre y fatalidad. Eln͠ico amigo que Noem̕ encontrar̀ es el hijo menor de la familia, quien tambǐn da la impresi̤n de estar tapando secretos oscuros. Porque hay muchos secretos escondidos en las pareces de High Place, como descubrir̀ Noem̕ cuando empiece a desenterrar historias de violencia y locura. Cautivada por este mundo aterrador a la par que seductor, a Noem̕ le resultar̀ dif̕cil salvar a su prima... O incluso escapar de esa enigm̀tica casa."--,Amazon.
After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemi Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She's not sure what she will find--her cousin's husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemi knows little about the region. Noemi is also an unlikely rescuer: She's a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she's also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: Not of her cousin's new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemi; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi's dreams with visions of blood and doom. Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the family's youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noemi, but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his family's past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The family's once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noemi digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness.
