The Surprising Cabin

Arturo Daussà

Arturo Daussà usually invites us in his novels to sail through a sea full of concerns, an ocean of interesting reading; simple, but not without details, and that, at the end, forces us to ask ourselves questions about the corruptions of our society that are inevitably uncovered in each of his stories. In The Surprising Cabin we witness the life journey of James Palmer, an ex-cop and private detective from Chicago who, facing the existential storm of his forties and abandoned by his former girlfriend, ponders everything he has considered essential in his life: his romantic relationships, the value of morality, justice, ethics and the law, and the hitherto unquestionable subjection to the established rules that keeps him in constant disagreement with his partner, Fabio Petrini. To meditate and find answers to his concerns, James travels to Indian River to stay in a cabin on the shores of Burt Lake and spend a few days fishing. There, among the community that inhabits this small town, he meets Cady Kalme, a beautiful and enigmatic woman who will change his life. Meanwhile, Battista Mancini, an Italy-based journalist and close friend of Fabio Petrini, is murdered in Milan just days after he and Fabio met in that city in connection with an investigation involving Alex Vasilin, a Russian client of Fabio, and its possible relationship with the Bratvá. Shortly after, in Ciudad Juárez, Manuel Mateos, a small-time drug trafficker, cousin of Lupe Rodríguez, ex-wife of Frank Becker, the owner of the cabin where James Palmer stays, is murdered... Thus, little by little, The Surprising Cabin takes us through human passions and contradictions: the search for love, truth, the longing for justice; and, as an inseparable counterpoint, the dark waters of corruption, excessive ambition, money laundering, illegal dumping, drug trafficking and, in general, the stormy ocean of mafias.
