About this Item

Paperback. 356 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.9in.In Santiago, Chile, revolution simmers in the shadows. In the pursuit of international legitimacy, the government of General Antonio Galvez de Montoya is pulling out all the stops to build a state-of-the-art stadium to host the FIFA world championship. Unfortunately, it is the poorest residents of the country who will pay the true price of this glory, as crucial domestic programs are sacrificed. A well-organized leftist movement, enraged by the brutal conditions of the poor, threatens the status quo at a time when the eyes of the world are on Chile-and Galvez is not amused. Two men from different continents converge on Santiago to help make Galvezs dreams come true. Sergio Alvarez and George King face dramatic pressure to finish the project on time and on budget, no matter what it takes. Working from Georges design, Sergio must navigate a perilous path shaped by corruption, political malfeasance, and crooked suppliers. He also pulls the strings to get Cecilia, his college-graduate daughter, a job on the project-never thinking that such an arrangement might turn his family inside out. As Cecilia gets to know George, what began as a working relationship quickly becomes an undeniable passion; now it seems that nothing can keep them apart. As the stadium project slowly moves toward completion, few are aware of the extraordinary events that are about to occur. Complications from all sides imperil the opening of the stadium- and George and Cecilias dreams. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
