About this title


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 drug dealer he is suspected of having double-crossed. But instead of a simple jail-break, 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.

From the Inside Flap:

l of menace and eroticism, Richard Ford updates the tradition of Conrad for the age of cocaine smuggling. The setting is Oaxaca, Mexico, where Harry Quinn has come to free his girlfriend's brother, Sonny, from Jail and, ideally, to get him away form the suavely sadistic drug dealer who suspects Sonny of having cheated him.

"His prose has a taut, cinematic quality that bathes his story with the same hot, mercilessly white light that scorches Mexico."--New York Times Book Review
