Description
Respected Mexican businessman Adam Gorozpe has a life so perfect that he might as well be his namesake in the Garden of Eden—but there are snakes in this Eden too, in this comic novel of political intrigue by the author of Happy Families and The Old Gringo. For one thing, Adam’s wife Priscila has fallen in love with the brash director of national security—also named Adam—who uses violence against token victims to hide the fact that he's letting criminals go free. Another complication is the little Boy-God preaching in the street wearing a white tunic, inspiring Adam’s brother-in-law to give up his job writing soap operas to follow this junior deity and implore Adam to do the same. To save his relationship, his marriage, his life, and the soul of his country, perhaps Adam will indeed have to resort to divine intervention.
