Few things in the life of Plutarco Elias Calles remain a mystery. While occupying the Presidency, he conspired, or ordered, the assassinations of Francisco Serrano, Father Agustin Pro, and Alvaro Obregon (among others). He established the PNR, the political party we currently know as PRI, and became the engine behind the presidential chair, a post he intended on keeping indefinitely. He was exiled by President Lazaro Cardenas in 1935 and returned to Mexico a decade later, to die. What is not commonly known, and is precisely the subject of this disquieting work, is the fact that Elias Calles participated in seances. Ignacio Solares takes us to the secret side of Elias Calles, a world inhabited by the ghosts of those he had killed. It is in conversations with these ghosts that we realize the terrifying consequences of falling in love with power.
Hacia el final de su vida, completamente solo, Plutarco Elías Calles busca un consuelo, descubrir un trozo de Verdad que le permita morir en paz, aunque lo espere un espantoso purgatorio donde tenga que confrontarse con cada una de las personas a las que mandó matar: Francisco Serrano, el padre Agustín Pro, álvaro Obregón... Cualquier horror es preferible a la Nada, la disolución total, en la que, por alguna extraña razón, Elías Calles nunca había podido creer, y ahora, luego de volverse asiduo asistente a sesiones espiritistas, ha vislumbrado otro mundo y es continuamente visitado por fantasmas.
