Ritualistic serial killings are, at this point I believe, a classic staple of the detective genre, and in his novel titled Tropic of Night , Michael Gruber tried to leave his mark on the field.
The premise of the story is rather simple. On one hand, we have the Cuban-American detective Jimmy Paz whose heritage makes him a bit of a link between the two cultures, giving him a unique sense of understanding of them both. Lately, Miami has been held firmly in the grasp of fear as a series of ritualistic killings have taken place, with the police seemingly none the wiser as to who could have done it. With the order of the city and even more lives on the line, Jimmy does his best to dig deep and find the truth buried beneath all the rot.
On the other hand, we have a Jane Doe, living in secrecy with everyone believing her to be dead… probably. As it happens, she was once an anthropologist and an expert on shamanism, and she knows about the truth Jimmy is trying to uncover. Michael Gruber had spent his literary career as a ghost writer for Robert K. Tenenbaum until he published this novel in , launching his own profession as an author. This is what I would refer to as one of those books mixing and mashing so many genres it almost comes to defy classification in the end.
While it is true there are times when it feels like the story is trailing off a bit, on the whole I would say the varying elements were included in a natural way as the story advanced onwards and were seldom there for mere padding. As a matter of fact, this partially turns the novel into an educative character study on the stage of intersecting cultures and mystical practices.
Additionally, this helps lighten up the atmosphere in contrast with the brutal murders and overall makes the novel feel like a thrilling and pleasant adventure. Each and every one of our narrators is rich in character and detail, depicted with extreme clarity and bearing many layers of fascination to unfold. As they advance throughout the story we witness their visible growth as people and watch them change the world around them, and in return be changed by it. Michael Gruber did a fantastic job at getting me invested in each of the characters and the fates awaiting them in the end.
Weaving three separate narratives into something presentable capable of withstanding scrutiny is a much taller order than it seems, which is why I believe Gruber deserves his fair share of praise for pulling it off.
