9780099466567: The Dancer Upstairs

In an unusually rich, daringly graphic novel of love and terror, one of England's finest young talents returns to the setting of his award-winning novel, The Vision of Elena Silves--a country not unlike Peru--to tell the story of Agustin Rejas and his manhunt for the terrorist rebel leader, Ezequiel.

Review:

Striding purposefully out into vintage Graham Greene and John le Carré territory, British novelist Nicholas Shakespeare tells a haunting, violent story about a military policeman from a country very much like Peru and his lifelong mission to track down an infamous rebel leader very much like the head of the Shining Path terrorist group. The tension builds slowly but beautifully, as a journalist in search of a story becomes instead an important player in the history of an embattled country.

From the Inside Flap:

The Peruvian guerilla leader Ezequiel is responsible for tens of thousands of fiendishly cruel murders, yet he consistently eludes capture. But in Agustn Rejas he has an indefatigable pursuer. From secluded city streets to the paths of a mountain village the policeman persists, tracking and anticipating Ezequiel's every move. Rejas' only reprieve is his love for his daughter's beautiful dance teacher--until he begins to pick up unmistakable signals that her circles--and Ezequiel's--intersect.
Based on the extraordinary manhunt for the leader of Peru's notorious guerilla organization, The Shining Path, The Dancer Upstairs is a story reminiscent of Graham Greene and John LeCarr--tense, intricate, and heartbreaking.
