Soon to be a major series on Telemundo.

From the Emmy award-winning journalist and “household name in the United States and in Latin America” (The New York Times) comes an intimate and captivating investigative exploration into the shocking murder of beloved Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.

On March 31, 1995, the Queen of Tejano music was violently murdered by Yolanda Saldívar, a woman she once counted as a trusted friend. As one of the biggest and bestselling Latin music artists ever, Selena’s untimely death is still mourned by countless fans around the world. But is there more to this tragic story than meets the eye?

Why was there a suitcase filled with Selena’s clothes at the murder scene? What was the significance of the jeweled ring, adorned with the initial “S,” that fell from Selena’s bloody fist? Who was the doctor from Monterey who called himself Selena’s confidant and business advisor? Selena’s Secret fits together the pieces of this puzzle and sheds light on what really happened on that rainy day in March.

With meticulous research and detailed coverage of the murder, trial, and aftermath, broadcast journalist María Celeste Arrarás reveals first-hand and exclusive details about the crime. From her headline-making jailhouse interview with Saldívar to her discovery of just what was meant by her repeated references to “Selena’s secret,” this is a classic work of investigative journalism.
