Ex-revolutionary Filiberto García is recruited to investigate rumors of an assassination plot. Translated by Katherine Silver.
December 22, 2013 Juan Vidal recommends three Latin American masterpieces that were translated this year: a boundary-pushing novella, a noir tale of an assassination plot and a complex exploration of identity and history.
