Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Mexican Gothic is a horror masterpiece, but she switches genres entirely in Velvet Was the Night. This time around, the author has written a dazzling noir about a secretary named Maite who is searching for her enigmatic missing neighbor, and a music-loving criminal named Elvis who can't help but be drawn to the woman who keeps getting in his way.
