Currently Reading - No-one Loves a Policeman, Guillermo Orsi
Less of a currently reading, and more of a just finished, this is one of the books that's been in my dip into whilst waiting basket.
From the Blurb:
It is December 2001 and Argentina is in meltdown. Pablo Martelli, once in an elite branch of the police force known as the "National Shame", is a shadow of his former self, scraping by as a bathroom-appliance salesman.
Late one evening, Martelli is summoned to a friend's coastal retreat. He arrives to find his friend dead, and is caught up in a bewildering odyssey that leads him though vast, empty pampas, along endless highways and into ghost towns seething danger and brutality, to the ailing heart of his country.
