Baker & Taylor
In Peru in the 1950s, two unglamourous detectives, Lieutenant Silva and Officer Lituma, find that everyone is indifferent to the murder investigation of a young airman

McMillan Palgrave
In Who Killed Palomino Molero, Mario Vargas Llosa turned to detective fiction. The novel is set on an air force base in Peru, where a young airman is found tortured and murdered. An entertaining and brilliantly plotted mystery, this book also takes up one of Vargas Llosa's great themes: despair at how difficult it is to be an honest man in a society based on a corruption of motives and feelings.
