Item description for Libranos del mal. Relato de un secuestro by Ernestina Sodi Miranda...

This is the kidnapping that has caused the greatest concern in Mexican public opinion. The abduction of Ernestina Sodi and her sister, the actress Laura Zapata, was perpetrated by a band of professionals, who are now incarcerated. The sisters were taken hostage in 2002, and Ernestina Sodi remained captive for three months, until her younger sister, the singer Thala, came up with the demanded sum. Those days Ernestina Sodi endured physical and psychological abuses that left deep wounds in her life and that of her family. This book is the painful account of her confinement. Through its pages we penetrate the dark, violent, and merciless world of organized crime; we will also witness the desperation, impotence, rage, and infinite fear, but also the luminous hope of freedom. Description in Spanish: La hermana de Thalia narra la estremecedora historia de su secuestro. Uno de los secuestros que mayor consternacion ha causado en la opinion publica mexicana fue el de la escritora Ernestina Sodi y su hermana, la actriz laura Zapata, perpetrado por la banda de secuestradores ''Los Tiras'', quienes se encuentran tras las rejas a raiz de la denuncia que ambas presentaron despues de su liberacion. Las hermanas fueron privadas de su libertad la noche del 22 de septiembre del 2002 a la salida de un teatro, despues de asistir a un ensayo de la actriz; golpeadas y amedrentadas, fueron trasladadas a una casa que los secuestradores adaptaron para retener a sus victimas y donde permanecieron encerradas, con los ojos vendados, mientras los secuestradores iniciaban las negociaciones para pedir su rescate. Despues de transcurridos 18 dias, y al no obtener respuesta de los familiares de sus victimas, los secuestradores liberaron a Laura Zapata. Sin embargo, Ernestina Sodi permanecio cautiva durante tres meses, hasta que su hermana menor, la cantante y actriz Thalia, completo la suma exigida. Esos dias Ernestina Sodi estuvo sometida a maltratos fisicos y psicologicos que dejaron heridas importantes en su vida y la de su familia. Este libro es el recuento doloroso de su encierro. A traves de sus paginas penetramos en el mundo oscuro, violento, sin piedad de la delincuencia organizada; presenciamos la desesperacion, la impotencia, la rabia, el miedo infinito, pero tambien la esperanza luminosa de la libertad. Acompanamos a la autora, asistidos de su escritura intima y serena, en su firme caminar por la linea fragil que separa la cordura de la demencia, la vida de la muerte. Somos testigos, ademas, su reconstruccion animica y corporal que comienza penosa, lenta, pero plena.
