A Small Death in Lisbon by Robert Wilson

1941. Klaus Felsen, forced out of his Berlin factory into the SS, arrives in a luminous Lisbon, where Nazis and Allies, refugees and entrepreneurs, dance to the strains of opportunism and despair. Felsens assignment takes him to the bleak mountains of the north where a devious and brutal battle is being fought for an element vital to Hitlers bliztkrieg. There he meets the man who plants the first seed of greed and revenge that will grow into a thick vine in the landscape of post-war Portugal. Late 1990s. Investigating the murder of a young girl with a disturbing sexual past, Inspector Ze Coelho overturns the dark soil of history and unearths old bones from Portugals fascist past. This small death in Lisbon is horrific compensation for an even older crime, and Coelhos stubborn pursuit of its truth reveals a tragedy that unites past and present. Robert Wilsons combination of intelligence, suspense, vivid characters, and mesmerizing storytelling richly deserves the international acclaim his novel has received.
