"Sandinista Police Captain Ajax Montoya is six days sober and losing his mind. How else to explain his nights waking in bed, his hand wrapped around that bloody-minded stiletto from the old days, or the presence outside his window, a face with no eyes watching him? How far the heroic have fallen. Ajax was once the gallant comandante guerrillero. A hero of the Nicaraguan revolutionaries in their long uprising against the Ogre and his hated National Guard ... Back then he knew what was what and who to trust. But as the clarity of war gave way to the hazy reality of peace, Ajax fared less well"-- Provided by publisher.

I read this while traveling in Nicaragua in hope that it would provide some understanding of the political history there. It did so beautifully. It's a novel I never would have chosen but I'm so glad I read it and am planning to recommend it to our book club.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story about a police office in Nicaragua trying to solve a murder while trying to discern who are his friends and his enemies. Fun read that I was reluctant to put down.
