Description


In the tradition of Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain, and David Goodis, Hector Aguilar Camin brings us a hard-boiled account of sex, corruption, and murder, where the line between memory and madness is blurred. The setting is Mexico. While attending the funeral of an old acquaintance, dissolute writer Serrano runs into a former rival. As Serrano digs into a past filled with excess and deceit, he finds himself questioning his own sanity.
