The BookViral Review:

An intensely exciting political thriller that fires on all cylinders, The Hidden Light Of Mexico City is one of those rare novels that promises much and over-delivers. Both timely and poignant. Amato writes with the authoritative voice of experience and it’s to her credit that her plot stands in contrast to many of today’s thrillers which often seem simple-minded and lacking in genuine depth.

Observant and intelligent it’s accurate in its broad strokes without allowing detail to overwhelm her narrative and whilst another author might have left us adrift in a sea of coincidences, propitious breaks, and fabricated leads Amatro keeps it straight with a superb plot and well-conceived twists.

It’s easy to identify the good guys from the bad, it’s taut and well-paced, but for readers reading between the lines it also works on a moral level with Amato asking the big questions. Does the government work for the people or do those that covet power use it for their own ends and should class divide us? 

On the latter, The Hidden Light Of Mexico City proves particularly powerful and affecting with the characters of Eduardito and Luz so well-crafted we understand not just the politics but the emotions as well. Equally as important, Amato knows how to embrace exposition and incorporate detail in a way that unspools naturally whilst she ratchets up the suspense.

A highly enjoyable, intelligent and escapist read, The Hidden Light Of Mexico City is sure to meet the expectations of genre junkies and is unreservedly recommended.
