Summary
"The ex Rock Star Mario Müller discovers a visionary possibility in the Caribbean: the pleasures of fear. On the banks of an enormous coral reef The Pyramid is built, a resort that offers controlled dangers until a diver dies outside of the water. Reflecting upon the damages we choose to inflict upon ourselves in order to intensify life, this passionate novel describes a new ecology: climate change empties hotels and money laundering regenerates them like ghostly empires. Arrecife is also a story of friendship, love and redemption"--
