Riassunto: [Read by Stefan Rudnicki]
During Fiesta, three desperate men converge in a perilous New Mexico town
It takes four days for Sailor to travel to New Mexico by bus. He arrives broke, sweaty, and ready to get what's his. It's the annual Fiesta, and the locals burn an effigy of Zozobra so that their troubles follow the mythical character into the fire. But for former senator Willis Douglass, trouble is just beginning.
Sailor was Willis' personal secretary when his wife died in an apparent robbery gone wrong. Only Sailor knows it was Willis who ordered her murder, and he's agreed to keep his mouth shut in exchange for a little bit of cash. On Sailor's tail is a cop who wants the senator for more than a payoff. As Fiesta rages on, these three men will circle one another in a dance of death, as they chase truth, money, and revenge.
L'autore: Dorothy B. Hughes (1904-1993) was a mystery author, award-winning poet, and literary critic. She published fourteen novels, the best known of which are In a Lonely Place and Ride the Pink Horse. Both were made into successful films. Her work had a major influence on other mystery writers of the postwar era, and the movies they inspired remain among the most respected of their genre. She was especially influential on the next two generations of female mystery writers. In the early 1950s, she largely stopped writing fiction, preferring to focus on criticism. She reviewed mysteries for the Los Angeles Times, New York Herald Tribune, and other papers and earned an Edgar Award for Outstanding Mystery Criticism. In 1978, the Mystery Writers of America presented her with the Grand Master Award for literary achievement.
