36 Tons: How Much Does a Death Sentence Weigh? Acapulco writer Iris Cuevas gives us a powerful book about identity, corruption and loss. A man wakes up in a hospital after extensive surgery, only to realize he has lost his memory. Terrified by his helplessness, he escapes from the hospital and follows various clues to Acapulco, where he learns he was somehow involved in a deal for 36 tons of stolen cocaine, brokered by the police and the army. The money has apparently disappeared, and some seriously unpleasant people are convinced that he knows where it is. A powerful, frightening story.

Historia de sexo y violencia en el Mexico de nuestros dias, 36 toneladas presenta a un hombre que, luego de una cirugia, recobra la consciencia para descubrir que ha perdido la memoria. Su vinculo con el pasado es un hombre de gafas oscuras que lo hostiga con una pregunta: Donde quedo el dinero? Apenas logra huir del hospital, el desmemoriado se dirige a Acapulco y luego a Chilpancingo, donde se entera de una sordida historia de corrupcion en la que, igual que importantes autoridades de Guerrero, el estuvo involucrado: 36 toneladas de cocaina decomisadas por la judicial fueron revendidas por el ejercito. Pero eso no es suficiente: el aun tiene que escapar de quienes lo persiguen, recuperar el dinero de la venta de la cocaina, y descubrir su verdadera identidad.
