5.0 von 5 Sternen dark gloomy 1980s Argentina police procedural 27. September 2011
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Jorge Turcheli is euphoric when he is named the new chief of the Buenos Aires police department. He asks his associate Superintendent Lascano, still recovering from a bullet, to return to the force. However, once an honest dedicated cop, Lascano wants to leave his homeland. However, on his first day in his new job in his office, the Apostles drug-selling cops assassinate Jorge as they plan to put one of their own in charge. The Apostle knows the next to kill is dedicated honest Lascano.

Meanwhile, Mole Miranda is released from Devoto Prison after spending one thousand four hundred and sixty one nights there for intellectual crimes. He finds his family rejects him and his best friend spent much of his money. A desperate Mole decides to rob a bank, but that goes ugly. Lascano sees an opportunity to leave Argentina with the bank robbery loot before the Apostles provide him with a funeral.

The second translated Lascano 1980s Argentina police procedural (see Needle in a Haystack) is a dark gloomy thriller in which corruption controls all aspects of the country. The two leads appear as polar opposites but share in common how far they have fallen in a system that destroys the honest. With plenty of fascinating metaphors to highlight the broken society, readers will appreciate this grim look at brutal Argentina less than three decades ago.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good But Less So Than His First Novel 13. August 2012
Von zorba - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Mallo's first book, "Needle in a Haystack", was superior because it brutally introduced us to the heartless heart of the Argentine military dictatorship of the 1980s. His follow-up book, "Sweet Money" is a continuation of the saga of honest, lovelorn police superintendent Lascano. But though not quite as good as his first book, this is a darn good thriller, written with the terse, curious and dark style of this master author. Buenos Aires is a city rich with intrigue, thanks to its tempestuous history. Mallo's ability to create memorable characters in this setting is very satisfying to the reader. "Sweet Money" is a story of an honest cop fighting a corrupt and murderous regime as he searches for a thug with a heart of gold, and tries to stay alive in the process. I found this a good read and look forward to Mallo's next offering.
5.0 von 5 Sternen More evil from Argentina 27. November 2011
Von Sandy Harcourt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"I couldn't put it down." That's how many laudatory book reviews begin or end. But I prefer my stress in small doses. With the evil of the Argentine junta in Mallo's first novel with Bitter Lemon Press in my mind, and the evil continually hinted at and sometimes described in this second in the series I continually had to put `Sweet Money' down. The junta is gone, but corrupt politicians and, worse, corrupt police, are the background and foreground menace throughout. The writing and translation are as excellent as before. I've signed up to be notified when the third in the series comes around.
4.0 von 5 Sternen a most satisfying read 5. Oktober 2011
Von Mark P. Sadler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
When Mole Miranda is released from jail he pledges to never again rob banks and to go home to his wife and child. After all, his cohort in the crime has been keeping the money safe, right? When it is revealed that the lovely young daughter of his friend has been diagnosed with cancer and all the money has been used for her treatment Mole decides one last job is in order.
Mallo brings us in to the dubious character painting him at once wretched and loveable, and in fact by the time you think that he is the protagonist along comes former superintendent Lascano, a man left for dead and who has even been replaced on the police force so that he has become persona non grata. Not a bad place he surmises, since it is the corrupt cops on the force that had originally done him in anyway.
Like Orwell before him, Mallo is one that believes to be successful you don't follow the norm, in fact, break any of these regular rules. All dialogue takes place is a separate paragraph, all run together, and written in italics. For a speed reader like me it takes an immense amount of concentration to read each sentence and figure out when the other party is talking. More than a little confusing. Luckily for Mallo is does not detract from either the plot or the eloquent language that this fine work of art is written in.
When female problems and money become a common denominator the former criminal and the former cop find their paths crossing at every occasion possible to the point that they cannot deny the bond that has developed and the liking they have for each other. With the final scene you find yourself whistling the theme song "The Girl from Ipanema" and visions from an old Bogart movie dance before your eyes. All in all, a most satisfying read.
