So they call it "the novel that became an Oscar-winning film", which traces the story of a retired investigator trying to "The brevity or prolonging the life of a human being depends primarily on the flow of pain that person is forced to endure. So they call it "the novel that became an Oscar-winning film", which traces the story of a retired investigator trying to write a novel based on a decade old rape-cum-murder of a young married woman and in the process of going through the past, old memories as well as romances cloud up his soul thus re-opening the window to his much cherished past but it comes with a price and with some mind-blowing revelations both personal as well as political.
While attempting to write a book about the case, he revisits the details of the investigation. As he reaches into the past, Chaparro also recalls the beginning of his long, unrequited love for Irene Hornos, then just an intern, now a respected judge. Now he is about to retire from his position and is planning to write a novel about a man named Ricardo Morales, whose young pregnant wife was brutally raped as well as murdered in the very comfort of their marital home.
Soon Morales is ruled out of the list of suspects and further intervening reveals that the killer is lurking somewhere near them or someone who is close to the woman. Thus when Chaparro shows few old snapshots of some men to Morales, his facial expression changes and thus judging from a hunch as well as on Morales expression, Chaparro risks his life to capture this killer and becomes successful four years later.
But due to inner as well as political corruption in the judiciary and the then periods of Argentinian "Dirty War" allows the killer to walk free who soon disappears into thin air. This is the central story of the book that occurs in the time frame of late 60s, whereas the present is tuned to the early 90s when the story opens with Chaparro and his idea of his manuscript.
Swaying between two timelines and in between two narrative styles- while describing the present the author uses the third person POV of Chaparro and while describing the past he uses the first person POV of Chaparro, the author never loses away from the exact emotion of the storyline- suspense and anticipation.
The prose is absolutely reminiscent thus knotting the brains of its readers with nostalgia layered with suspense and the urge of finding out what happens next never leaves the room. The mystery is wrapped under a corrupted judiciary as well as dirty politics in Argentina which proved to be a strong backdrop for this story thus making it engaging as well as thought-provoking for its readers.
