MYSTERIES IN THE MORNING: October 19

Book Discussion of The Neruda Case by Roberto Ampuero

Pablo Neruda was, of course, a well-known Chilean poet, politician and diplomat, so you can imagine how much there is to talk about!  Copies are available at the Adult Services Desk, and you are welcome to pick one up and come for a great discussion with coffee cake and coffee:

  • The Neruda Case by Roberto Ampuero
  • Friday. October 19
  • 9:30 a.m.
  • Teen Room


Rogish detective Cayetano Brulé is recruited by a dying Pablo Neruda to help solve the last remaining mystery of his life. The investigation takes him around the world, ending finally back in Chile, just before Pinochet’s coup. A political thriller that is evocative, romantic and full of intrigue.

"It has been important to me to select books set all over the world. This mystery takes place in several countries with the predominant backdrop being the 1973 Chilean coup. The great poet, Pablo Neruda, is a central figure in this mystery and our detective, Cayetano Brulé, is trying to solve a mystery on Neruda’s behalf. I’m a big fan of Neruda, and was excited and interested in seeing him in a different vein in this mystery." - Meghan
