This week's pre-publication
by Giles Blunt
Publication Date: February 17, 2009
From Random House :
"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 Peña, 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."
I have read and thoroughly enjoyed every book Giles Blunt has written except his latest "No Such Creature" (April 2008) which I have a copy to read and review for LibraryThing. Breaking Lorca is a departure for Blunt and I always knew he was too good to just keep writing crime mysteries, even award winners as his have been. I can hardly wait.
What are you looking forward to reading?
