An Open Secret

by Carlos Gamerro, translated by Ian Barnett
£7.99   paperback  Pushkin Press (2012)

An Open Secret by Carlos Gamerro, translated by Ian Barnett Drawing on the legacy of Argentina's Dirty War, Carlos Gamerro's An Open Secret is a compelling postmodern thriller confronting guilt, complicity and the treachery of language itself.
 
Dario Ezcurra is one of the thousands of Argentinians unlucky enough to be 'disappeared' by the military government - murdered by the local chief of police with the complicity of his friends and neighbours. Twenty years later, Fefe, a child at the time of the murder, returns to the town where Dario met his fate and attempts to discover how the community let such a crime happen. Lies, excuses and evasion ensue - desperate attempts to deny the guilty secret of which the whole community, even Fefe himself, is afraid.
