In Buenos Aires, a corrupt cop is assigned to investigate a murder he committed
Comisario Miguel Fortunato is assigned to kidnap an American businessman, and when the job goes awry the corrupt but decent Fortunato finds himself a murderer. When the Americans send their own investigator to Argentina, the young and inexperienced Athena Fowler, Fortunato is assigned to assist her. As he falsifies evidence and even finds a suitable killer to confess to the crime, Fortunato begins to unravel the mystery of who the victim was and why he had to die.
Buenos Aires is an intimate part of the book, replete with tango dancers, burnt-out-revolutionaries, and a pornographic website financed by the World Bank. From the cheap bars of the outer barrios to the gleaming high-rises of international corporations, crimes of the lowest and highest order come together in one of the most dangerous and beautiful cities on earth.
17 Stone Angels has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Chinese, and Thai. This is its first publication in the U.S.
