      Just as these other two Vargas Llosa novels, "Who Killed Palomino Molero" is more poetic rendering of the humanity's tribulations and propensity for hope than a complex, fast paced story/5. Who killed Palomino Molero? is an entertaining and brilliantly plotted mystery. It is also serious fiction. Deftly, unobtrusively, the book takes up some of the great themes of all of Vargas Llosa's novels: guilt and innocence, the impossibility of justice in a society grounded in inequality and the eternally elusive nature of the truth/5(11).

        Palomino Molero is found horrifically murdered in the Peruvian desert, near to an air force base in the s. Two local cops, Lieutenant Silva and Officer Lituma investigate. They discover that Molero was stationed at the base, but the commanding officer there refuses them permission to question other personnel as it is outside their jurisdiction.
