In this novel 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 furthermore get him away from the suavely sadistic drug dealer who suspects Sonny of having cheated him.
