4.5 stars.

Subversive Mexican detective novel, finely crafted, with self-referential winks.

Hector Belascoarán Shayne takes on three cases at once: an executive has been murdered, a teenage girl is being threatened, and Emiliano Zapata might still be alive. Belascoarán stumbles around 1976 Mexico City through a haze of sleep deprivation looking for clues, threatening baddies, getting into scrapes, admiring beautiful women, relying on a few stalwart friends, and regularly second-guessing his decision to become a private detective.
