'The vortex of Caribbean politics made even more turbulent by one of the most compelling of contemporary storytellers' New York Times
Flying charter cargoes around the Caribbean wasn't quite the same as flying in Korea, but it was still a living, and Carr had built up a solid reputation over the years, managing to keep his hands clean. But when he is almost brought down by mercenary pilots flying for the newly instated La Republica government, he realises it is inevitable that things will get messy.
As both the new government and the FBI seek his services, Carr takes a job flying a camera plane for a major Hollywood movie in order to escape the conflict. It soon becomes apparent, however, that his new employers have more in mind than aerial shots.
