Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This Third World espionage novel makes timely use of Mexico's vast oil and gas reserves as the object of the private greed and political maneuvers of Arab, Israeli, and Mexican spies. Caught in the
middle is Felix Maldonado, a minor bureaucrat with a taste for mystery movies and Jewish women. He is asked to exchange his identity for his life and winds up as an agent for the ambiguous spy master 'Timon,' who uses quotations from Shakespeare as a secret code. Despite its wooden dialogue and fantastic plot, this is a fast-paced and compelling thriller." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
