“One of today’s best storytellers”
Publishers Weekly

After the breakup of his marriage and his forced relocation to Buenos Aires, Rob Cavanaugh’s life was going downhill fast. Until he met Elena.

She was smart and beautiful and danced like a dream. But she had a history that she said he could never understand, a history that went back to the Dirty War of the 1970s, when government death squads brought a new word to the word: the Disappeared.

Then he learned that the past is never over in Argentina. Beyond the bright lights and the romantic tango music were the open wounds of kidnapping, torture, and betrayal—and one last chance for redemption.

From Booklist (Starred Review):
“Shiner’s latest (after Black and White, 2008) delivers its grim story line with artistic mastery and surprising punctuation by joy and hope…”

From Publishers Weekly:
“The versatile Shiner (Black and White) plunges into the dark recent history of Argentina in this thriller that tells a gentle love story against a backdrop of sheer terror. Shiner gracefully and efficiently tells his moving tale within a tight frame. Along the way are short tutorials on tango, Argentine history, and torture techniques.”
