The Matador Murders is set in Montevideo, Uruguay and Santiago, Chile, both cities the author has lived and worked in and knows well, where Roger and Suzanne have to solve another murder. With apologies to reality, the novel's Montevideo is much like the lawless Chicago of the prohibition years. That's part of the fun of writing fiction--an author can turn one of the most law-abiding and civilized cities in the world into the wild west of the 19th Century U.S. frontier with the stroke of a pen. Actually, it's more the click of a keyboard nowadays.
The plot of this suspenseful whodunit thriller is based very loosely on Dashiell Hammett's classic novel, The Red Harvest, the basis for the movie Last Man Standing. The book features lots of action and a suspenseful storyline. Who is the mysterious Mr. X behind all the killings?
The cover photo is of the Pocitos neighborhood of Montevideo, on the Rio de la Plata. If you use a very strong magnifying glass, you can actually see the apartment we rented while we were living there.
