Isabel Allende transports us to a Latin American country in the
grip of a military dictatorship, where Irene Beltran, an upperclass
journalist, and Francisco Leal, a photographer son of a Marxist
professor together discover a hideous crime. They also discover how
far they dare go in search of the truth in a nation of terror . . .
and how very much they risk.
"Allende skillfully evokes both the terrors of daily life under
military rule and the subtler forms of resistance in the hidden
corners . . . She can just as deftly depict loving tenderness as
convey the high fire of eroticism. And when you've successfully
mingled sex and politics with a noble cause, how can you go
wrong?"-- "New York Time Book Review"
