The crime of Padre Amaro = El crimen del Padre Amaro by Carlos Carrera( Visual )

34 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arriving at his new post at a small rural Mexican church, a recently ordained priest meets a beautiful young woman with a religious passion that borders on obsession. Quickly her passion for her faith becomes entangled in a growing attraction to the new priest. When the priest crosses the line that separates temptation from sin, he finds himself torn between the divine and the carnal, the righteous and the unjust
Los albañiles by Vicente Leñero( Book )

110 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El asesinato de don Jesús, vigilante de un edificio en construcción, y la consecuente investigación policiaca son el punto de partida para que Vicente Leñero explore las miserias de la naturaleza humana y del sistema corrupto que las propicia. La muerte, verdadera o imaginaria del velador viejo y enfermo provoca las confesiones de los obreros que trabajaban con él y la gente que lo rodeaba. Con una suma audaz de recursos, Leñero sabe convertir el género del thiller en una muy profunda, pero ágil y divertida reflexión y le plantea al lector una pregunta incesante: ¿quién es el culpable?, o mejor, ¿quién no lo es?

26 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the old downtown section of Mexico City. The events that take place have been divided into the stories of three neighbors whose lives are entertwined. Rutilio, the family man who experiences homosexual feelings that shatter his domestic life; Susanita, the spinster who dreams of getting married and falls prey to a thief; and Alma, the virgin who becomes a cocaine addicted prostitute."--Container
El evangelio de Lucas Gavilán by Vicente Leñero( Book )

35 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hábilmente construida y adaptada, El evangelio de Lucas Gavilán es una respuesta ética y social al mundo de los marginados, "los desheredados de la Tierra". Una novela de impecable prosa con conocimiento del lenguaje de los pobres; una escritura exigente y vigilante que evidencia la madurez literaria de Vicente Leñero. Con el protagonista, Jesucristo Gómez, los mexicanos morimos todos los días. "Uno de los principales propósitos de Leñero parece ser presentar a Jesucristo a los nuevos cristianos."

La ley de Herodes = Herod's law by Luis Estrada( Visual )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tiny town of San Pedro de los Saguaros needs a new Mayor, as the populace has assassinated several. As a reward for his party loyalty, the ruling governor gives hapless junk dealer Damián Alcázar the post. An honest if idealistic man, Vargas arrives with his beautiful, ambitious wife Gloria. Picked for his stupidity, he quickly discovers that bribes, blackmail, gratuitous fines, and other abuses of authority are the only way to get things done, and soon transforms himself from ineffectual stooge to paragon of corruption--or, a successful politician. Along the way, he encounters a surly madam, a moralizing doctor, a mercenary priest, and an opportunistic gringo. He justifies his actions with a motto learned from his party leader, who quotes Herod's Law, which is (if somewhat reworded), "Either you screw them or you get screwed."
