To restore his prospects, the nephew travels to Valencia for one night to retrieve a mysterious novella, Latin Omnivore.

The nephew tumbles into a conflict between shadowy organizations, a battle waged in bookstores and at card tables. The nephew must outwit his rivals and prove himself worthy before dawn, or else the book will vanish forever and his fortunes will be doomed.
To be published in a single tête-bêche volume with Latin Omnivore.
