Retired detective Benjamin Chaparro finds himself once again revisiting a decades-old case of a brutal rape and murder of a young wife. With his undeclared love for former colleague Irene and his obsession with this case haunting his life Benjamin decides to put pen to paper and write a novel.
This amazing book is primarily a murder mystery with the extremely interesting element of this novel actually being a book within a book. Eduardo has done a marvellous job in structuring this story. It builds throughout the story with plot revelations in the right places instead of waiting until the end to reveal all.
This book is a definite page turner in the truest sense of the word. By creating a beautifully honest relationship between his characters Eduardo has made it impossible not to connect with this book. With the added layers of romance, politics and 1970’s Argentinean history this book is both compelling and wonderfully profound.
Eduardo Sacheri is a brilliantly talented author who has created a truly riveting novel. If you like mysteries, detective novels or you just want a masterfully written book, The Secret in Their Eyes is the book for you.
