A man’s body is found hanging in the restrooms at United Nations Headquarters the same day that Barack Obama is soundly defeated in the congressional elections. Next to the body is a strange note predicting the advent of a new world order. Donovan Sheldom, the United Nations Press Secretary, and Loanne Harvey, an unemployed journalist, try to decipher the crime before it is made public. However, they end up uncovering a conspiracy of far greater proportions than they had imagined. El Péndulo is the first incursion of the author of the very successful Y.A. title Grimpow into the adult fiction. A disturbing thriller, constructed with clockwork precision, that reflects on the conspiracy hysteria in our society and the excessive control of democratic governments over the population.
