Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense, Fiction in translation

Welcome to the Holy City, where bent cops are ten a peso, and it is only the degree of corruption that is ever in question.

A passenger liner runs aground on the muddy banks of the Rio de la Plata. One by one, its passengers are abducted by Buenos Aires' criminal classes.

But top of his agenda is former Miss Bolivia Ana Torrente. Why are the bodies of the men who try to take her to bed always found minus a head?
