Open­ing with reports of a child abuse scan­dal at an ele­men­tary school, then weav­ing its way through dozens of sor­did sto­ry­lines and char­ac­ters — includ­ing var­i­ous mur­ders, cor­rupt politi­cians and real-estate moguls, and the Nazi past of the city—Gesell Dome chron­i­cles the dark under­bel­ly of a pop­u­lar resort town tense­ly await­ing the return of the tourist season.

Two-time win­ner of the Dashiell Ham­mett Prize, Guiller­mo Sac­co­man­no is Argenti­na’s fore­most noir writer, craft­ing inci­sive, unflinch­ing books that reveal the inequities of con­tem­po­rary life.
