Journal Entry 1 by MrSamsa from Tucson, Arizona USA on Thursday, April 01, 2021

Grandfathers with nothing to lose are the most dangerous avengers, argues Buckley, whose The White House Mess (Knopf, 1986) is still going strong. Here, armed with his puckish humor, and drawing on the milieu of drugs and insurgency, Buckley unleashes a formidable senior citizen's vengeance when his only grandchild dies of a cocaine overdose. After disposing of her domestic predators, the old geezer sets sail in his yacht for the Amazon, bent on eliminating the Peruvian drug lord in his jungle redoubt. Buckley subtly merges the sheer entertainment of a good travel yarn with the vicious motivations of greed to produce a story that deserves a strong recommendation.
