9780955233937: Cadence of the Moon

A series of murders committed with dreadful sadism by a psychopathic killer shakes Costa Rica like one of the earth tremors that periodically bedevil Central America. The police and press compete to uncover the murderer's grisly trail - leading to a passionate encounter between a detective and an astonishing female reporter whose charms are her most powerful investigative tool. In a groundbreaking work of fiction that explores the sharp dilemmas faced by both policemen and journalists alike, Costa Rican writer Oscar Nunez Olivas explores just how close - and how far - from the truth reporters and detectives on the trail of a lunatic can be.Published by Aflame Books, "Cadence of the Moon" is a tale of intrigue and human frailty based on the real story of Costa Rica's first ever case of a serial killer. Nunez Olivas draws upon the details of a notorious unsolved crime that horrified this small country to weave a plot that examines the dilemmas faced by journalists driven by a professional ethic yet living by the rules of the real world. Translated by Joanna Griffin from the Spanish-language original ("En clave de luna"), "Cadence of the Moon" explores how the police and press investigations reinforced and contradicted each other and the political and financial pressures that compromised both. Nunez Olivas says: "Objectivity in journalism is a vacuous concept. There does not nor has there ever existed objectivity in the act of scrutinising, interpreting and transmitting human experience."
