Dead Man in Paradise is amongst many other things a beautiful and heart breaking rendering of a place clear eyed and without illusion explaining and reckoning its complicated and violent history where the meddling of our country exacerbated the struggles of everyday Dominicans yet always maintaining a sense of openness and wonder About what he calls the place of New World Firsts JB writes in a way to give the reader not only a clear vision of the Dominican Republic but a feeling for the emotional core of the physical He writes the tiny roads seemed to gather and the miniscule cubes of campesino houses until he finally saw the chockablock mass of the city itself Later in the book describing nearly the same scene as it is viewed from the passenger seat of a Chevy Nova he describes houses baseboards muddied by the force of recent rains There s real poetry there and throughout real economy of language which makes this book not just a travelogue but a real exploration He explores both external and internal especially that of memory after all he is investigating something that happened 42 years ago uoting Father Joe at one point saying these people live in their memoriesthey keep it in their heart and he fully communicates to the reader the danger and uncertainty still present still tangible to the residents of the Domincan in the words of the rector Roberto Santana who speaks of past events but who could just as easily be speaking of the present it is a dark thing a cosa mala He also shows the discomfort of a foreigner in the country poking at the past while those who live there still have their trying presentEarly in the book he writes It wasn t true but sometimes a story is convincing than the truth Dead Man in Paradise is a mystery scrolled out by facts by detail JB spends much of his time pulling at the threads of that fact until he truly unravels the tale of Padre Arturo first following the trail this way then that to a dead end a false tip then back until the story as much as can be uncovered begins to coalesce He gets across how in any investigation whether legal or journalistic there is always the constant feeling of being on a tightrope of the danger of missing something At one point as he listens to the breakneck Spanish of a man who might represent the key to unlocking the whole mystery he writes I strain to keep up all my life energy focused on his words There are lovely sketches of countless other individuals each of whom provides a touch or a lot of the tale One of the things that JB does best is get out of the way and let each person tell their own story thus enabling him to better learn Arthur s through them And the details JB MacKinnon relates give us a tactile living and vibrant picture of his uncle Father Arthur MacKinnon The portrait is not hagiography Arthur is sometimes impulsive a hardhead seriously austere apparently not a very good dancer So when JB shows the undeniable admirable ualities and importantly the actions of Father Arturo the man emerges complete a man who acts because as he said days before his murder about his speaking out in his sermons against the brutality in his town in the country If I don t do it no one is going to do it A man whose legacy still is strong in Monte Plata as a real presence than just a faded mural on a wall but as a powerful reminder that good can be done in the world and though the brutality of evil can try to erase that good and deny justice to that that seek it the good done by people like Arthur MacKinnon remains still
