"Tomlinson's debut is golden...churning with suspense...a vividly described journey throughout Peru's underbelly...the narrative gains momentum, hurtling toward a dramatic climax." ... Kirkus Reviews

The Truth Doesn't Always Set You Free.


In 1987, the dirty war that will last twelve years and kill thirty thousand Peruvians finally reaches up through the Andean cloud forest for Nina and her family. Nina's father is shot by soldiers, her mother raped, and her brother lost to the shadowy ranks of Shining Path guerrillas. And when Agustín Malqui, the village pastor, files a legal complaint against the military, it's no surprise when he disappears in the middle of the night--just another casualty of the military regime.

Twenty-odd years later, Nina, now an officer in Cuzco's tourist police, comes across a familiar name on the police printer that she scans daily for any trace of her long-lost brother. Agustín Malqui is alive. After spending years in a political prison, the broken pastor has been wandering the country, saving souls and drowning his demons in pisco. Nina tracks him down, only to lose him yet again in a police sweep of political malcontents. But before Malqui disappears, he tells her a drunken tale she can scarcely believe: that her brother Miguel is still alive.

Despite warnings and threats from her chief and the pleadings of her lover, an officer in Peru's anti-terrorist branch, Nina presses on to find Malqui. Her search takes her through Peru's underworld, from remote villages high in the Andes to the steaming jungle haunts of the narcotraficantes, and ultimately to a secret political prison in the altiplano, where she learns the truth about Malqui and her own vanished brother.

About the Author:

Born in the wilds of San Francisco, with its rich literary history and public transport system teeming with potential characters suitable for crime novels, it was inevitable that Max Tomlinson would become a writer. He is also kindred spirits with a dog named Floyd, a shelter-mix who stops and stares at headlights as they pass by at night. There's a story there, too. If only Floyd could talk. Then again, maybe not. Max has published five novels to date: SENDERO (listed as one of the top 100 Indie novels of 2012 by Kirkus), WHO SINGS TO THE DEAD, LETHAL DISPATCH and LOOKING FOR THE DEAD BOYS. His latest - THE CAIN FILE - an international spy thriller set in the US and South America, was selected by Amazon's Kindle Scout program for publication in 2016.
*The SENDERO mysteries read as standalone novels.
