Editorial Reviews

Review

"Savvy and bleakly comic....A vigorous full-dress satiric farce that neatly skewers the self-righteous mendacity of all the Americas, ours very much included. The wittiest political novel we've seen in some time."

--
Kirkus Reviews

"Wright is a gifted journalist who paints his characters in vivid pictures with just the right details for each."

-- Lawrence R. Collins Jr.,
Houston Chronicle

"Brilliantly fictionalizes Noriega's fall from grace."

--
Texas Monthly

"A deliriously weird portrait of General Manuel Antonio Noriega...[as] both crazed and oddly sympathetic, a kind of Central American Tony Soprano."

--
The New Yorker

"[An] edge-of-your-seat, often darkly comic tale....This artfully crafted novel of political intrigue...crackles with authenticity, offering a telling insight into recent history."

--
Publishers Weekly
