• "A trippy Peruvian mystery clearly inspired by Borges but touched also by North American authors from Chandler to Paul Auster.”
  • “A knotty, fascinating puzzle-plot riddled with anagrams, mirrors and doppelgängers that blur the material and the meta."
  • “Unique…mixes common elements found in mysteries and film noir with the rich world of crime fiction and art. Salvador del Solar’s lead performances is stellar and Javier Fuentes-León direction is tight and exciting."

Edo Celeste is a renowned crime novelist, who is writing the final book in the series about his alter ego, detective Felipe Aranda. Edo is obsessed with the disappearance of his fiancee Celia, which took place the day of the 2007 earthquake in the southern coast of Peru. Seven years later, an enigmatic woman brings Edo dozens of cryptic photos that may help solve the mystery of Celia's disappearance. Edo senses that he's being tempted into a dangerous game, but believes this is the only way to find his fiancee alive. A labyrinth of clues submerges Edo in a race through the streets of Lima and the deserted beaches of Paracas. His final destination will confront him with the ultimate riddle any writer could face. THE VANISHED ELEPHANT is a tantalizing mix of THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES and TELL NO ONE.
