From the author of
R.J. Ellroy situates this pulsating mystery-thriller against the backdrop of the CIA's ******-smuggling connections used to finance the United States' self-interested interventions in Nicaragua in the 1980s and '90s. Amidst this high-level governmental scandal, Ellroy interweaves a serial-murder investigation that confounds two D.C. homicide detectives. The Jane Doe female victims have virtually no connections in the world, so uncovering even who the victims are--let alone who the perpetrator is--proves difficult. Were the members of the Witness Protection Plan? Were the murders done by government agents? And how do these victims link with the CIA's drug running?
