For Antonio, growing up Spanish in Glasgow is a nightmare--one of shame and potential embarrassment on every front. But there is no hiding his ethnicity: his noisy, bullying father, even his gentle mother and her quest for olives and exotic meats, put paid to that. It is only as he grows older, and can see his father for what he is, a reluctant exile washed up on the cold shores of Scotland, that Antonio begins to understand what terrible forces drove his father to flee 40 years before. Unraveling his father's secret life piece by piece, Antonio discovers a truth that will shock and heal him.

While some crime/mystery novelists churn out a book a year and seem after a couple of them to be repeating their formula, Sara Paretsky stands out for her richly populated casts, continually developing main character, timely themes, complex plotting, and continual surprises for the reader.
