This novel explores one of the most astonishing stories in the whole history of twentieth century terrorism. Colonel Rejas was the policeman charged with the task of capturing the Peruvian guerrilla leader Ezequiel, but having been dismissed he finds the burden of silence and secrecy too heavy. On meeting Dyer, a foreign correspondent, he is moved to relate the tortuous progress of the manhunt for the first time. The Dancer Upstairs is a story reminiscent of Graham Greene and John le Carré - tense, intricate and heartbreaking.

Review:

"Shakespeare is interested in grand themes: love, vocation, politics and the corrupting power of moral and ideological absolutes... The Dancer Upstairs will be enjoyed by any kind of reader... It is enviably good, a genuinely fine novel from a writer who possesses real heart and flair" (Louis de Bernières Sunday Times)

"Almost steams with the author's understanding of South America and yet is somehow poetic and tender" (Observer)

"Will count among the best work being produced by the present generation of British writers" (Independent on Sunday)

"As cracking a story as any yarn, as informed as any journalism, and delivered with firmness and urgency" (The Times)

"In addition to being a satisfyingly rich tale or romance this is a highly intelligent examination of Peruvian - and South American - reality... Funny and devastating... I was riveted by this superb novel" (New Statesman)

Book Description:

'A crackling good yarn - Graham Greene meets Gabriel García Marquez' Evening Standard
