About the Book

Argentina 1978

A brutal military junta suspends civil liberties for anyone that opposes it. Distraught mothers of ‘The Disappeared’ parade daily in front of the capital building.

In retaliation, violent acts of terrorism shatter what is left of normal life. Only one thing can unite all the people.

The World Cup of football.

Two brothers, Renaldo and Lonfranco De Seta chart a different course for their futures.

While both brothers fall in love with powerful women, Renaldo, a young soccer prodigy, strives to make a place on Argentina’s national team.

Lonfranco, angry and disenchanted, is seduced into becoming a Montonero terrorist.

From the plains of the Pampas, to the boardrooms, boudoirs, battlefields, locker rooms, and seething stadiums, Renaldo is a love story unlike any ever written, and a novel shockingly relevant to times we live in.
