When Nicosio Salvarado is hired to break a commercial embargo in the remote archipelago of Kalos, the captain accepts the job unaware that he will be involved in a conspiracy to overthrown a de facto government. The life of this mercenary has been marked by a "constant variable" in which fortune and risk produce far-fetched results. This destiny, premeditated or forged, is one of the elements that will contribute to the final clash of forces. In the midst of this vortex of unpredictable consequences, Nicosio meets Lottia, a woman that ends up splitting the history of Kalos and creating a profound dilemma in the captain.
From music to screenplays, journalism and literature, Gustavo A. González has developed an intuitive an original storytelling style. Imagination and humor have been his greatest allies since childhood, and throughout the years his creativity has found different forms of expression. His prolific work as a musician and composer is a testimony of his talent. Gustavo studied cinematography in Italy and his name has appeared in diverse movies, short films and TV series. As a Communicator, Journalist and Producer he has developed his career in Colombia and United States where he has been awarded with an Emmy.
His first novel “Los Hijos de Godesh” (Godesh’s Progeny) have prompted some critics to consider his style as an "imaginary realism" since the veracity of certain situations can be questioned by the inexplicable facts and fantastic descriptions of his narrative. To this regard, the author believes that all imagination is real, especially in literature, where an experience can be created from inexistent facts. Another example of this “imaginary realism” can be found in his thriller, “Clara y sus oscuras intenciones” (Claire and her obscure intentions), where humor and suspense are intertwined with unexpected events.
