This study examines the detective narrative of Ramon Diaz Eterovic with a particular emphasis on his novels published between 2001 and 2007. The book proposes and original and relevant analysis of Diaz Eterovic's literary work by positing that his novels confront the dominant discourses of culture, politics, and histiography through the integration of the hard-boiled and so-called social novel. The result is a critical look at Chile's democratic transition in the post-dictatorial era (1990-2007).

"With certainty we can assert that this analysis of the last five novels published by Ramon Diaz Eterovic prior to the end of 2007 constitutes a fundamental contribution to the panorama of Latin American studies and the neopolicial, primarily for its methodological focus (cultural-ideological), capable of approaching this prominent Chilean writer's narrative work as a chronicle of present-day Chile and Latin America." - Dr. Patricia Espinosa Hernandez Professor of Literary Criticism and Chilean Literature Instituto de la Comunicacion e Imagen de la Universidad de Chile "[This] critical study of the recent literary works of Chilean writer Ramon Diaz Eterovic examines with erudite clarity and perceptiveness the characteristics attributed to [the new detective novel's] increased relevance within the Latin American literary panorama." - Dr. Cecilia Ojeda Associate Professor of Spanish Northern Arizona University"
