“OAXACA BLOCKADE” by Charles Kerns is a fast paced story of Robert Evans’, affectionately called Santo Gordo, adventures as he helps his friend, Efraim, and he’s large extended family while weaving through the pitfalls of Oaxaca and Mexico City. Robert had moved to Mexico after retirement looking for the relaxing, slow pace life that Mexico has to offer – plus the good food. He seems to be succeeding other than when Efraim calls on his help. However, a little excitement from time to time is a good thing. The book highlights a lot of the political unrest issues in Mexico from corrupt police, union strikes, kidnapping and ransom, and teen rebellion as well as the attraction to the Mexican way of life and retirement. Their quest is to find Efraim’s nephew, Fede, and to protect him from is naïve self as well as his overbearing father, Emilio, who is part of the underbelly of the political realm. The adventure is made harder by a misidentified suspect that led Robert on a wild goose chase and dodging the goons which seem set on demanding their money or doing them bodily harm or both. Along the way you get a glimpse of what life in Mexico must be both off the beaten path as well as the touristy places including several hints into their food which Santo Gordo never gets his fill. I’d recommend this book to anyone that loves a quick read with a lot of fast paced action.
