On a sweltering summer night at a restaurant in an unnamed Latin American city, a man at a family dinner gets up from the table to go to the restroom . . . and never comes back. He was acting normal, say family members. None of the waiters or other customers saw him leave. Mystified, the family hires semi-retired detective takes the case, but what should be a routine investigation becomes something strange, intangible, even sinister. The corporation for which the missing man worked seems to be a front for something else; the staff describes their colleague as having suffered alarming, shifting physical symptoms; a forensic scientist examining his office uncovers evidence of curious microorganisms. As the detective traces the mans footsteps, the trail leads him away from the city sprawl and deep into the countrys rainforest interior . . . where, amidst the overwhelming horrors and wonders of the natural world, a chilling police procedural explodes into a dislocating investigation into the nature of reality.

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.
