Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel

In this enthralling debut novel, neurologist Patrick Lazerenko travels to The Hague to witness the war crimes trial of his mentor, Hernan García, a Honduran doctor accused of involvement in torture. As Garcías supposed crimes are revealed, Patrick wrestles with what truth there may be behind the accusations, haunted as he is by his own youthful memories of the man and his family. But it isnt until Garcías shocking intentions come to light that Patrick begins to realize that however sophisticated his knowledge of the brain may be, it will take more for him to understand the human heart.

Synopsis:

“Like a cross between John le Carré and Ian McEwan, Garcías Heart treads the line between an elegant, elegiac novel of ideas and a sophisticated political thriller.”

---Pauls Toutonghi, author of Red Weather
