Leonardo Bazán unwittingly witnesses the robbery of a neighboring house. But this wasn’t your typical robbery. It was carried out by a well-organized group using sophisticated logistics; and even included a member of the police force. Yet, more disturbing to Bazán are the memories of a similar crime— witnessed with his parents—that took place in that same house in 1976 during the first years of Argentina’s military dictatorship. Having suppressed the traumatic event from his childhood, Bazán sets out to write it down in an attempt to free himself of a past he’s been unable to forget or understand. How exactly did he and his parents react and how should he judge those reactions today? How can a decades-old criminal still be in use? And how is it possible that even now people still react with the same level of fear? Written like a detective’s note pad, where with each piece of evidence thoughts and conclusions are called into question and organized crime is revealed, Una misma noche is a suspense novel that explores the role citizens play when facing the most brutal and secretive forms of power, and also reflects on the unbearable conscience of our own cowardice. Intimate, political, confessional, powerful, and mysterious, this is a story destined to endure.
