Abstract:

A master crime writer trains every weapon in his arsenal on a crime against humanity. A literary novel that treads fearlessly into one of recent history's most shocking moral crucibles. In 1980s El Salvador, a young woman is detained in a government torture squad's head-quarters, suspected of supporting guerilla forces. There, a bookish new recruit, Victor PeNa, is assigned to assist in her interrogation. Before they learn so much as her name ' Lorca ' the squad relentlessly break her, body and soul. It is a terrifying journey into human cruelty and courage, one which years later ' in the pinnacle of cosmopolitan America ' still haunts the tormentor as dramatically as it does his victim. From the Hardcover edition.
