Summary
Part haunting crime thriller, part love story, this brilliantly executed novel within a novel is the book on which the Oscar-winning best foreign film of the same name was based. But its stands alone as a gobsmackingly good read, reminiscent of another peerless Spanish tale, The Shadow of the Wind. On the day of his retirement criminal investigator Benjamin Chaparro is determined to put to rest his obsession with the decades-old brutal rape and murder of a beautiful young married woman in Buenos Aires by writing a book about it from his point of view as the chief investigator. As Chaparro sifts through the evidence of the investigation that has haunted him all these years, he begins to revisit the lives of people with whom he had become entangled in pursuit of the murderer: Morales, the murdered woman's husband who has never recovered from the tragedy of losing the love of his life; Pablo Sandoval, Chaparro's gifted but unpredictable partner; and Irene Menendez Hastings, the beautiful upper-class former judge's assistant whose relentless interrogation of one of the prime suspects provoked unintended consequences. Vividly evoking the danger and political intrigue lurking just beneath the surface of everyday life in Argentina during the 1970s 'Dirty War', The Secret in Their Eyes also holds the key to Chaparro's own private drama ... a secret love
