[Talk about] unexpected: Silva Moreno-Garcia zigs after zagging with Velvet was the Night, her crime drama about student uprisings in Mexico City. Her new book is The Daughter of Doctor Moreau, and it’s a bit more Mexican Gothicy than Velvety Nighttime. We’ve got genetic hybrids. We’ve got secret research facilities. We’ve got rich patrons who live above the squalor of most of human existence. And we’ve got someone who doesn’t belong. But oh, their arrival starts a chain reaction that may destroy everything. Strap in. This one is going to strange places.
