This is the second volume of the trilogy promised by Captain C: Traces on the Water Mirror. The prose writer from Constanta creates a story based on history and fiction, able to win readers. The dynamic plot suggests a policier, with an unpredictable confrontation between an oppressive system and a man with a strong personality; there are also strange adventures, in searching for huge values “transported” by the leaders of Securitate over the borders, passionate love affairs and scenes of the last days in Ceausescu’s epoch. These all complete a vibrating picture described with an overflowing imagination. The writer was trained as sea captain and he was taught that a self-respecting author should follow the safe way to the shore of the Good Hope.
