9788499180069: Trago amargo (Spanish Edition)

Cuando a Sunny Pascal le encargan que haga de niņera de un grupo de estrellas de Hollywood durante el rodaje de La noche de la iguana, parece que se trata de un trabajo facil: una playa paradisiaca en Mexico, muchos bares en el camino y olas para practicar surf. Claro que la cosa se complica si las estrellas en cuestion son Ava Gardner y sus piernas eternas, Sue Lyon con su inocencia fingida, y Richard Burton, borracho y violento, y que ademas llega a Puerto Vallarta acompaņado de Elizabeth Taylor. Muchos ingrendientes para que el cocktail no resulte explosivo. Las cosas no se quedan, por desgracia, en una titanica lucha de egos sino que para aderezar al director de la pelicula, John Huston, no se le ocurre otra cosa que regalarles a los actores una pistola de oro con cinco balas de plata a cada uno, para que se maten entre ellos, si quieren. Como tenia que suceder, alguien muere. Sunny Pascal, el primer detective beatnik de la historia, mitad en todo --mitad mexicano, mitad gringo; mitad alcoholico, mitad surfer; mitad vivo, mitad muerto; alguien con half espaņol, mitad english-- sera el encargado de mantener a raya a chantajistas, ladrones, asesinos, actores, director y equipo tecnico. Y todo ello, mientras mantiene el cool, bebe cocteles y procura que no lo maten a el tambien.
