Cayetano Brulé PI, Created by Roberto Ampuero

This entry was intended as a private note, but I thought it might be of interest to some readers of The Game’s Afoot.

For an introduction to Cayetano Brulé read: Cayetano Brulé, created by Roberto Ampuero at The Thrilling Detective Web Site.

Read more about Roberto Ampuero (Valparaíso, Chile, 1953) at Wikipedia and my previous post Roberto Ampuero.

Since his introduction in 1993 in his debut novel ¿Quién mató a Cristián Kustermann?, Editorial Planeta, 1993 (English: Who Killed Cristián Kusterman?), awar with the Revista del Libro prize of El Mercurio, Cayetano Brulé has appeared in six other novels: Boleros en La Habana, Editorial Planeta, 1994 (English: Boleros in Havana); El alemán de Atacama, Editorial Planeta, 1994 (English: The German of Atacama); Cita en el Azul Profundo, Editorial Planeta, 2004 (English: Appointment at the Azul Profundo); Halcones de la noche, Editorial Planeta, 2005 (English: Nighthawks, 2005); El caso Neruda, Editorial Norma, 2008 (English edition: The Neruda Case, trans.
