En español | Nominated in 2010 for an Edgar Award — the most prestigious prize in mystery fiction — for Havana Lunar, Robert Arellano returns with Curse the Names. A journalist, lured by a "sexy, young blood tech," delves into the secrets of the Los Alamos nuclear facility, where the first atomic bomb was built.
What might seem like an action-driven thriller à la James Patterson is in Arellano's taut prose a trip into the mind of a man on the edge of delirium, piecing together a puzzle at the expense of his marriage and his sanity.
