"During a sweltering South American summer, a family convenes for dinner at a restaurant. Midway through the meal, Carlos gets up from the table and disappears. An experienced, semi-retired detective takes the case, but what should be a routine investigation becomes something strange, intangible, even sinister. The corporation for which Carlos worked seems to serve no purpose; the staff talk of their missing colleague's alarming, shifting physical symptoms; a forensic scientist uncovers evidence of curious abnormalities in the thriving microorganisms that shared Carlos's body. As the detective re-lives and retraces the missing man's footsteps, the trail leads him away from the city sprawl and deep into the country's rainforest interior."--Provided by publisher.

I don't know how to choose the number of stars for this book: excellent writing but so horrifying that I had to stop halfway through. If you wouldn't watch a horror movie, you might want to avoid this book.

Nightmarish descent into a claustrophobic, feverish ecology of existence. Infinite Ground provides a landscape of fluxional reality, escape from which is continually thwarted. MacInnes confronts the reader with a quandary: are the expository situations hallucinatory, or coercively conspiratorial by design. If the latter, by whom? This novel ought to appeal to connoisseurs of metaphysical mysteries.
