This is not a book to read at the beach,
Busy plot, multiple subplots and characters:
A mixture of real-life (the indomitable Lee Jaffe
And her vision for the World Trade Center -yes, that one)
And then the fiction:the hooker with the gold heart ; blackmail,
Extortion and finally murder. All characters beholden to the corporate villain,
It's corrupt and vile enablers.
An indigenous nation which suffers greatly; individuals who profit existentially .
Disturbing, familiar and even without much humour, hard to put down.
Not for everyone- Less risky for those with catholic tastes.
