Overview

An atmospheric thriller of menace, eroticism, and psychological revelation.

Harry Quinn and his girlfriend Rae head to Oaxaca, Mexico to spring Rae's brother Sonny from jail and protect him from the sinister durg dealer he is suspected of having double-crossed. But instead of a simple jailbreak, Harry and Rae fall into a nightmarish series of entanglements with ex-pat whores and mute Zapotec Indians. The Cocaine Era's answer to Graham Greene, this exquisitely choreographed novel tracks Rae's and Harry's inexorable descent into the Mexican underworld, where only a stroke of ultimate good luck can keep them alive.
