Summary
The third English language case for Mexico City independent detective Hctor Belascoarn Shayne, No Happy Ending, is Paco Ignacio Taibo II at his subversive, darkly comic best. First, Hctor discovers the body of a dead actor, dressed like a Roman in full breastplate and regalia, propped up on the toilet in his office. Shortly thereafter, he receives a threatening letter and a snapshot of another murdered corpse. As Hctor investigates the killings he discovers that both share a connection to a dead stuntman named Zorak who apparently perished while training a government-backed paramilitary group. Once again, the one-eyed anarchist detective finds himself up against the very institutions which persecute the downtrodden and oppress the masses. In typical Taibo fashion, Hctor appears destined to lose? the ending to this remarkable absurdist tale shows his bullet-ridden body lying face down in the gutter during a rainstorm
