"Dark Tangos" Novel as a Free Download


The starred review from BOOKLIST said, "Delivers its grim story line with artistic mastery....Short and precise, the novel uses the elegance of tango to radiate sensuality throughout. This is an absorbing and surprisingly action-packed tale based in the ugly truths of Argentina's history.'"

I'm reading the novel now and think it's excellent, especially the description of the tango and the milonga scenes.



You can download the free PDF file from the BoingBoing website--just click the book cover.

It's kind of discouraging because I'm getting my memoir, The Church of Tango, ready to publish. And Mr. Shiner is giving his ebook away for free. You can still purchase a hardback copy on Amazon for $23.10.

Hey Cherie,

Thanks for the heads-up on Dark Tangos. I read it today on the bus from Wellington to Rotorua - an excellent story :-)

See you in a month or so.

Cheers,
Mark.

Cherie, Don't be discouraged about someone giving their work away. It is a different story, and yours is one that lots of people with want to read. I "give" artwork away to auctions for various causes all the time, but it does not stop people from buying. A certain amount of giving gets the interest up for your genre, and for reading and enjoying stories about tango and BA.
