A famously temperamental soccer star, OVIDIO ANGELETTI, has just suffered a terrible loss: Someone has stolen his favorite necklace. No ordinary piece of jewelry, this rhodochrosite had belonged to his birth mother, a woman he has never met. She had ‘disappeared’ during the famous Argentine dirty war of the nineteen-seventies. This superstar really wants it back. And he refuses to play soccer again until someone finds it. Enter AINSLEY WALKER, a gemstone detective who embarks on a journey into the brash heart of Argentinian futból culture. Running from nightclubs in historic mansions to seedy tango parlors, from the impoverished shantytowns of Buenos Aires to the mountains of Patagonia... ...Ainsley discovers glamour, danger, excitement, and the dark secrets of a country’s hidden past. It’s a travel adventure that will change the way you see your life.
