Bolivia. 1991. A soldier arrives in the small town of Uyuni. A place where people endure rather than enjoy. Survive than live. The soldier knows they’re coming for him. Hunting him down so they can deal their own brand of justice. He needs to get out. To make it to the border and escape what is waiting for him. He’s prepared to do anything to survive. Even kill.

This is noir fiction at its finest. With characters that you will root for, heartbreak and breathtaking writing, this is a story that will linger in reader’s minds long after you’ve turned the final page.
