Product description

As the city of San Juan pulses to summer’s sluggish beat, teen soccer prodigy El Brujito – ‘the Little Magician’ – vanishes without trace. Paul Faustino, South America’s top football journalist, is reluctantly drawn into the mystery. But as a story of corruption and murder unfolds, he is drawn deep into the jungle: forced to confront the bitter history of slavery, and the ancient power of the occult.

‘I can’t begin to describe how terrific this book is… Glorious, cartwheeling, magical, frightening.’ Frank Cottrell Boyce

‘A heady mix of slavery, football and the occult… intoxicating.’ Publishing News

“Impossible to put down.” TES
