He lives in Toronto.

    From the Hardcover edition.
    A master crime writer trains every weapon in his arsenal on a crime against humanity.

    A literary novel that treads fearlessly into one of recent history’s most shocking moral crucibles.

    In 1980s El Salvador, a young woman is detained in a government torture squad’s head-quarters, suspected of supporting guerilla forces. There, a bookish new recruit, Victor Pena, is assigned to assist in her interrogation. Before they learn so much as her name – Lorca – the squad relentlessly break her, body and soul. It is a terrifying journey into human cruelty and courage, one which years later – in the pinnacle of cosmopolitan America – still haunts the tormentor as dramatically as it does his victim.

    From the Hardcover edition.
