Advanced readers often need a more exciting, challenging story. This is a detective story set in present-day Mexico, but in which it seems that the ancient Aztec god Tezcatlipoca is responsible for various deaths. Police officer Rodriguez and journalist Casanova are investigating, but that is definitely not without danger. Can they prevent their own death?

Is this book suitable for you? You can read the first chapter by clicking on the pages on the left-hand side. If you can read this chapter fairly easily this book is the right one for you.

This book contains a Spanish-English glossary.


Nicole de Boer "Some easy readers are fun to read and you learn from them, but the story is not really exciting. That is completely different in this book, there are several deaths and a policeman is put on the case. He gets help from a journalist, but then they find a mirror that leads them to an ancient Aztec god. Surely this god cannot possibly be responsible for the enigmatic events? For intermediate readers of Spanish , both the language and the story are a challenge."


For teachers

Tezcatlipoca is an adventurous and thrilling book. It has both contemporary and mythical elements. Each chapter has a fixed structure and there are many helpful illustrations. Completely new words or constructions are translated directly at the bottom of the page. All this makes the text easier to understand. The level of this book is A2 +.

It is a suitable book for individual reading, but it can also be read in class. And it could be used to accompany a project about Mexico or the Aztecs. Diverse activities contribute even more to the learning process. Who wouldn't want to act out a detective or Casanova?
