Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0156005484, Paperback)The Chilean expatriate novelist Luis Sepulveda, who scored a major hit in the Spanish-speaking world with his 1992 book The Old Man Who Read Love Stories, has concocted an adventure tale about a quest for missing Nazi gold. The main characters include a Chilean revolutionary named after a famous matador, a pair of former SS agents, and a Swiss insurance investigator; they meet up in the desolate reaches of Tierra del Fuego in their search for the Wandering Crescent Collection, a set of 63 priceless gold coins that disappeared from Nazi Germany in 1943. Sepulveda blends the tense adventure of a Frederic Forsyth novel with a Borgesian sensibility--and manages to pull it off.
