Praise for Some Clouds... ':The real enchantment of Mr. Taibo':s storytelling art lies in the ':wild and melancholy': tango of life he sees everywhere.': -New York Times Book Review ':A vibrant, pulsating, and often poetic tale [with] a subtle power that belies its size.': -Booklist Mexico City detective Hé:ctor Belascoará:n Shayne is summoned home from vacation by his sister, whose childhood friend Anita has been raped and nearly killed by unknown assailants. Hé:ctor discovers that Anita, recently married into the wealthy Costa family, has just seen her husband and his two brothers systematically murdered. Now, if she can stay alive long enough to receive it, Anita stands in line to receive a legacy of some 200 million pesos. During his investigation, Hé:ctor trades stories with a novelist who is writing a crime novel based upon the recent murder of fourteen narcotraficantes and has traced the crime directly back to Judicial Police Commander Saavedra. How a detective can operate in a society in which the social and political institutions designed to protect the people are hopelessly corrupt? Paco Ignacio Taibo II has lived in Mexico City since 1958 when his family fled from Spain to escape the fascist dictatorship of Francisco Franco. Considered the founder of the neopolitical genre in Latin America, more than 500 editions of his 51 books have been published in 29 countries and a dozen languages. His novels featuring Mexican Private Investigator Hé:ctor Belascoará:n Shayne are among his most popular works.
