"The last time Florida motel owner George Moran was in the Dominican Republic he was in a uniform and people were shooting at him. Years later he's back looking for a girl he lost - and finding one he'd be better off without. But that doesn't matter to George while he's sleeping with beautiful Mary de Boya - only when he discovers his lover is the wife of a former death squad general in exile with mob connections. So much for the trip down memory lane - now Moran finds himself in a cat's cradle of drug deals, swindles, vengeance and murder."

A fast paced thriller by the master of fast paced thrillers, funny and with sharp dialogue.
A great plot and an interesting cast of characters drive the story that will keep the reader guessing what might happen next, all the way to the last page.
The description of the central American general and his ways of doing business sounds very realistic and brings to mind the 1980's political situation in a few central American countries.
The characters are very life like and it's not hard to imagine where Elmore got the inspiration for the former general with mob connections.
If you haven't read anything by this author this book is a good way to start.

Well, I can't say I'm enthused with this book. The characters and their actions lack any depth and don't make sense, the plot is heavily driven by coincidences and impossibilities while the dialogues seemed superficial or too "American" to me.
All that said, the book towards the end gains some pace, the action is fun although somehow predictable and I guess this was a fine book to pass the time.

Thanks once again for sharing!
