Synopsis

In May 2009, Rodrigo Rosenberg, a wealthy, charismatic lawyer, was murdered near his home in Guatemala City. This is nothing unusual, since the country has a murder rate four times higher than Mexico’s. What is extraordinary is that Rosenberg knew that he was about to be killed. After two of his clients were murdered a few weeks prior, he began investigating a case that he feared would lead to his own death. A video he had recorded days before he died in which he blamed the president for his impending murder was then uploaded to YouTube and nearly brought down the government. A special prosecutor opened an investigation—a journey into Rosenberg’s soul and Guatemala’s hell—that after multiple twists and turns reached a stunning revelation.

Sinopsis

En mayo de 2009, Rodrigo Rosenberg, un afluente y carismático abogado, fue asesinado cerca de su casa en Guatemala. Lo extraordinario del caso es que Rosenberg sabía a ciencia cierta que iba a morir. Pocas semanas antes, dos de sus clientes habían sido asesinados y él se lanzó en pleno a una investigación que sospechó lo llevaría a su propia muerte. Días antes de su asesinato, Rosenberg grabó una video acusando al presidente por el asesinato inminente. Cuando el video fue subido a YouTube, casi hizo caer al gobierno. Así comenzó una investigación magistral que arribó a una conclusión increíble.
