Under This Terrible SuneBook - 2016
A stoner travels to remote Argentina to identify the bodies of his murdered mother and brother. What could possibly go wrong? Cetarti spends his days in a cloud of pot smoke, watching nature documentaries on television. He is torn from his lethargy by a call informing him that his mother and brother have been murdered, and that he must identify the bodies. After making sure he has enough weed for the trip, he sets out to the remote Argentinian village of Lapachito, an ominous place where the houses are sinking deeper and deeper into the mud and a lurid, horrific sun is driving everyone crazy. When Duarte, a former military man turned dedicated criminal, ropes Cetarti into a scheme to cash in on his mother's life insurance, events quickly spiral out of control... A riveting, thrilling, and shocking read, Under This Terrible Sun will appeal to readers of Mario Vargas Llosa and Robert Bolaǫ. It paints a vital portrait of a civilization in terminal decline, where the border between reality and nightmare is increasingly blurred.
