She was smart and beautiful and danced like a dream. But she had a history that she said he could never understand, a history that went back to the Dirty War of the 1970s, when government death squads brought a new word to the world: the Disappeared.
Then he learned that the past is never over in Argentina. Beyond the bright lights and the seductive tango music lay the open wounds of kidnapping, torture, and betrayal--and one last chance for redemption.
"Delivers its grim story line with artistic mastery....an absorbing and surprisingly action-packed tale based in the ugly truths of Argentina's history."
