From the Nobel Laureate, Latin America's greatest living writer, comes a thrilling detective story that explores the seedy underbelly of Peruvian privilege. When a high-profile businessman is blackmailed by a notorious magazine editor, his comfortable life is threatened by the salacious expose. While attempting to field the scandal, the businessman's wife, seeking comfort, begins a secret affair with the wife of his best friend.

Then the editor is found murdered, and the two couples have no choice but to descend into the murkiest depths of Peruvian society, while the magazine's staff embarks on its greatest revelation yet . . . Mario Vargas Llosa was born in Peru in 1936. He is the author of some of the last half-century's most important novels, including The War of the End of the World, The Feast of the Goat, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter and Conversation in the Cathedral. In 2010 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
