"Gladys Darío, sterling police lieutenant for the revolutionary Sandinista government in volatile 1986 Nicaragua, has been kidnapped by a notorious Contra commander. Gladys knows she doesn't have a hope for escape, unless her partner on the police force, former Sandinista guerrilla comandante Ajax Montoya, stages a rescue attempt. When he does, it's more outrageous than Gladys could ever have imagined. But it comes at a price. Ajax is imprisoned for years, and Gladys is sent to Miami and blacklisted in her home country. And then a young American journalist, Jimmy Peck, goes missing in El Salvador. American Senator Anthony Teal wants Ajax Montoya running that rescue operation, too, and Teal has the strings to pull to make it happen. Teal sends Ajax and Gladys into treacherous, war-torn El Salvador to find out what really happened to young Peck, and to bring him home, alive or dead. But when it looks like another American has been killed in El Salvador, Ajax and Gladys find themselves dangerously entangled in a murder case as well as a missing person case, all playing out in the heart of El Salvador's raging civil war"-- Provided by publisher.

Ajax and Gladys enter war-torn El Salvador to find a missing young man. There is no lack of brutal violence throughout. The misery facing the Central American countries at that time
and the 'assistance' provided by the U.S. illustrates how the 'good guys' mess up. A thorough knowledge of the history of El Salvador by the reader could help muddle through the complexities of the politics and their despotic leaders. Gannon is working on his next novel which will no doubt be another mission for Alex and Gladys.
