From the first chapter:

"Los viernes, el Banco Central de México D.F. cierra sus puertas al público a las 3pm. Después de esa hora, ya nadie puede entrar al banco. Los empleados, de todos modos, deben seguir trabajando hasta las 4.30 o 5pm. A nadie le gusta quedarse después de hora, pero la verdad es que no hay otra opción. Todos los días quedan cosas pendientes, y alguien debe encargarse de resolverlas. Hoy, los últimos en salir son los cajeros. Para ser un viernes no está nada mal: a 4.40pm ya estaban afuera del banco. En la puerta saludaron al personal de seguridad. Ellos siempre se quedaban hasta las 6 de la tarde (y a veces un poco más). El día de hoy, debían esperar a los técnicos informáticos. Sus jefes les aseguraron que los técnicos iban a llegar al banco antes de las 6pm, por lo que no tendrían que quedarse después de hora.

Efectivamente, pocos después de las 5.30 llegaron los empleados del departamento de informática. A diferencia de todos los expertos en computadoras, ellos no parecían nerds o geeks. No tenían anteojos ni remeras de Star Wars. Como estaban trabajando los tres llevaban puesto el uniforme de la empresa de servicio técnico para computadoras: camisa y pantalón azul, con el logo de la empresa en color blanco."

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.
