This moody murder mystery set during an overnight train journey in 1950s South America "delights like strong coffee savored in a cosmopolitan cafe" (Publishers Weekly). In 1952, a train makes its way from La Paz, Bolivia, to the Chilean seaport of Arica. Among the passengers are: a businessman with his much-younger wife, a man in priest's garb hiding a secret, Irish and Russian expatriates, a miner, and a student. Before the trip is over, there will be many revelations-including the identity of a killer. From the author of American Visa, a winner of Bolivia's National Book Prize, this atmospheric novel is "part social commentary, part mystery thriller . . . A chilling, tragic tale" (MultiCultural Review).
