Gisela Chípe’s skilled narration captivates in this immersive novel set in ‘90s Mexico City. Montserrat and Tristán have been friends since childhood. Now both are approaching 40 and still struggling in their film careers, and Montserrat resents her long simmering crush on the handsome Tristán. When they meet cult-favorite horror director Abel Urueta, he persuades them to help complete his decades-old final film. Urueta believes it was cursed by the death of the Nazi occultist behind it. Finishing it initially changes their luck—until Tristán begins seeing ghosts. Chípe conveys the pair’s mounting dread as they’re drawn into a world of sinister magic. Chípe’s excellent pacing and dynamic voice keep the tension high as events turn deadly. E.E.C.
