Translated by Nick Caistor
It’s not easy being a cop in Mexico City.
Meet Carlos Hernandez, Carlito to his women. He’s a police detective with a complicated life: a wife, a mistress, children by both, and a pay-check that never seems to arrive. This being Mexico, he resorts to pimping, blackmail, money laundering and arms dealing to finance his police activity. The money for justice must be found somewhere.
The corpse in the hotel room is that of a gringo with a weakness for blue movies. Carlito’s maverick investigation leads him into a labyrinth of gang wars, assassinated prostitutes, and corrupt politicians.
A savagely funny, sexy crime adventure that is a biting satire of life in Mexico.
