Tabloid reporter Matt Teller is tracking down a routine lead in the California desert when he encounters the mutilated corpse of a man recently tortured to death. His pictures mean front-page news to his callous editor, but Matt hopes this will be the story that finally earns him a job on a respectable newspaper. Rival tabloid reporter Don Kozlowski and Matt's former girlfriend are also after the details. Then there's Bill Buchanon, erstwhile temperamental pitcher turned alcoholic scout for the Yankees, who's trying to sign a star pitcher from Guatemala. Probing the mystery of the corpse in the desert brings them to the remote hideaways of the Sanctuary Movement, where they must contend with Mago, sadistic head of the Guatemalan secret police, for a long-hidden secret key to power in Central America. Though well paced and written, this novel contains numerous instances of graphic violence and torture.
