Mystery & Suspense • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Robertson Dean’s superb narration brings the first English translation of the noted Chilean author's body of work to listeners in the United States. This book is the sixth volume featuring Ampuero's trademark investigator, Cayetano Brule. Fraught with the intrigues of revolutionary Latin America in the early 1970s, the story deftly weaves the last days of Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda’s life and of President Salvador Allende's rule in Chile in a masterful work of literary detective fiction. The narrative tracks the budding detective Cayetano as he races to solve a mystery for the dying Neruda. Dean easily navigates his narration through a variety of characters and accents, whether Cuban, Chilean, or German, and captures the pain in Cayetano's heart as Allende's rule crumbles and Neruda succumbs to cancer.
