Summary
From the safety of her home in a run-down suburb of Buenos Aires, a woman watches her five year old son, 'the dirty kid' on the street. They sleep outside, surrounded by pimps and addicts, psychopaths and dealers, worshippers of the occult and corrupt police. One day, the mother and the dirty kid are gone, and the dismembered body of a child is found in the neighbourhood. Is the murder part of a satanic ritual, or a gangland killing? Things We Lost in the Fire takes the reader down to the crime-ridden streets of post-dictatorship Argentina, to a world of sharp-toothed children and stolen skulls, where sleep-deprived fathers conjure up the phantoms of child killers and young women, exhausted by a plague of violence, decide there's nothing left to do but set themselves on fire
