Description
"In this leisurely, character-driven study set in 1952 from Bolivian author [Juan] de Recacoechea (American Visa), a train ride across the high Andean plain serves as the stage for a high-stakes card game, a quick sexual encounter, and murder.... The large cast mirrors the political and social scene, including an older businessman and his teenage wife, a skirt-chasing college student, a revolutionary disguised as a priest, expatriates from Ireland and Russia, and a deadly one-legged mine worker who [idolizes] Long John Silver, his favorite fictional character. More Camus than mystery thriller, this novel delights like strong coffee savored in a cosmopolitan cafe."Publishers Weekly
