Dark Tangosby Lewis Shiner

After the breakup of his marriage and a forced relocation to Buenos Aires, Rob Cavanaugh's life is going downhill fast. Until he meets Elena.

She's smart, beautiful and dances like a dream. But she has a history that she claims he could never understand, a history that goes back to the Dirty War of the 1970s, when government death squads brought a new phrase to the world: the Disappeared.

Rob soon learns that the past is never over in Argentina. Beyond the bright lights and the romantic tango music are the open wounds left by a legacy of kidnapping, torture, and betrayal – and one last chance for redemption.

Born in Texas, Lewis Shiner is a musician, rock music journalist and award-winning author, writing across genres. He has published six short stories collections and eight novels, including Glimpses, winner of the World Fantasy Best Novel Award.

From the author of OUTSIDE THE GATES OF EDEN.

First published in 2011.

MARKET: The Dancer Upstairs; Nicholas Shakespeare.

'The versatile Shiner 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' Publishers Weekly

'Shiner's latest delivers its grim storyline with artistic mastery and surprising punctuation by joy and hope' Booklist
