The Times Crime Club

Buenos Aires, 1981.
Inspector Alzada’s work in the Buenos Aires police force during the Dirty War exposes him to the many realities of life under a repressive military regime. Personally, he prefers to stay out of politics, but when his hot-headed revolutionary brother Jorge is disappeared, Alzada knows he will stop at nothing to recover him.

Buenos Aires, 2001.
Argentina is in the midst of yet another devastating economic crisis. Alzada is still an inspector, determined to keep his head down in anticipation of a peaceful retirement with Paula and the nephew they’ve raised together. But all his plans are derailed when a young woman’s dead body lands in the dumpster behind the morgue on the same day a woman from one of the city’s wealthiest families goes missing.
