"Victory after vicissitude, suspense after suspense. This is how a story is told that, from the Montevidean Barrio Sur to the border Melo (with a stopover on the island of Manhattan), collects and exhibits what has been delivered to oblivion: complicity civic-military to defraud and lacerate lives, impunity, betrayal.Sustained in the nobility of the detective genre, this novel brings us the great themes that made a literature that continues to make us, readers supposedly in search of of mysterious "evasion". We thus find love and its masks, immortal death and mocked death, the incorruptible desire for truth, intelligence, shudder and justice. In these places, to our delight, Rafael Massa, With The Invention of Death, the imperishable discourse on weapons and letters continues, offering us a form of revenge, or justice, poetic and political." Alma Bolón.
