Abstract:

"Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Washington, D.C., Malena is a story of ordinary lives ensnared in a web of hidden horror. At a time when Argentina's military junta is kidnapping, torturing, and killing thousands of its own citizens to stamp out dissent, Kevin Solórzano (Solo), an American interpreter, finds himself back in the land of his youth. As Solo grapples with the government atrocities he discovers, he finds his path converging with that of his love rival, Argentine army captain Diego Fioravanti, a dreamer who moonlights as a tango instructor and who will ultimately risk his life for the 'disappeared.' Their journey to the depths of officially sanctioned terror will sear their souls and challenge their humanity"--Page [4] of cover.010 2012932103.
