A Sweet Scent of Death - Guillermo Arriaga The author is Mexican and this was translated. A tight chilling little novel of murder, and timeless lawlessness in a little Mexican village. It could have been set in the 1800s, except its era betrayed by info such as the selling and smuggling of tape recorders.
Polished it off this afternoon in about 2-3 hours.
