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.

'Ford’s sense of place is extraordinary... This is the work of a formidably talented novelist’ -- Newsweek
'Ford’s taut, compelling prose is as piercingly clear as police siren. No other storyteller writes about the alienated and uncommitted with such mastery’ -- Penny Perrick, Sunday Times
'So hard-boiled and tough that it might have been written on the back of a trenchcoat. A grand 'Maltese Falcon’ of a novel’ -- Stanley Elkin
Richard Ford was born in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1944. He has published five novels and two previous collections of stories. His novel, Independence Day was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and, two weeks later, the PEN/Faulkner award for Fiction, the first time the same book has won both prizes.
