Bruno Cadogan has flown from New York to Buenos Aires in search of the elusive and legendary Julio Martel, a tango singer whose voice has never been recorded yet is said to be so beautiful it is almost supernatural. Bruno is increasingly drawn to the mystery of Martel and his strange and evocative performances in a series of apparently arbitrary sites around the city. As Bruno tries to find Martel, he begins to untangle the story of the singer's life, and to believe that Martel's increasingly rare performances map a dark labyrinth of the city's past.

Reviews

'At times reminiscent of Paul Auster, The Tango Singer has the makings of a satisfying thriller' Daily Telegraph 'One of Latin America's most celebrated contemporary writers ... The Tango Singer is a work of hallucinatory brilliance ... This exhilarating and often poignant book has a liberating rhythm every bit as hypnotic as the tango itself' Adam Feinstein, Guardian 'Gloriously mysterious ... a rich and delicious experience ... His writing is satisfyingly sharp and eccentric' Independent on Sunday 'This is nothing like the Buenos Aires that he has read about ... A vivid, fascinating, dreamlike novel' Kate Saunders, The Times
