Look Out For … The Things We Lost In The Fire by Mariana Enriquez

Look Out For … The Things We Lost In The Fire by Mariana Enriquez

Her fiction is that pulse-racingly superb, that electric and original.

A woman returns to the rundown suburb of Buenos Aires her family once called home. From the safety of her window, she watches as a teenage prostitute raises her five-year-old son 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? Could it be the dirty kid, and if so, is his mother a victim too; or an accomplice; or his killer?

Why We’re Excited About This Book:

According to the press blurb, Mariana Enriquez presents a dark and delicious taste of Argentine Gothic, full of sharp-toothed children,  of women racked by desire, of demons who lurk beneath the river, of stolen skulls and secrets half-buried under Argentina’s terrible dictatorship, and of men imprisoned in their marriages, whose only path out lies in the flames. With such delights promised between its covers how can we not be excited about The Things We Lost In The Fire?

The Things We Lost In The Fire is out on 6 April 2017 and is available from Amazon.
