Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

An atmospheric suspense story and a political allegory, Mario Vargas Llosa's Death in the Andes offers a panoramic view of contemporary Peru from one of the world's great novelists. In a remote Andean village, three men have disappeared. And Peruvian Army corporal Lituma and his deputy Tomás are dispatched to investigate. But the townspeople do not trust the officers, and they have their own ideas about what forces claimed the bodies of the missing men. To pass the time, Tomás entertains Lituma with tales of a precarious love affair, his stories intermingling with the ongoing mystery of the missing men.
