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.

Review:

`Ford is a masterful writer' -- Raymond Carver

`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 a police
siren' -- Sunday Times

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