    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Cynthia says: "Masterful Story-tel!ing & Great Narration!"
    "Heroics, crime, humor and sex in sizzling Miami"

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Back to Blood?

    It's hard to beat the opening event--a daring rescue by our protagonist, Officer Nestor Camacho.


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lou Diamond Phillips is remarkable in the expressiveness of his voice. His command of accents ranges from Cuban to Russian to Long Island to redneck. Without his carefully differentiated portrayals of the characters, Back to Blood would not have been nearly as much fun.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the inner voice of Magdalena, a Cuban nurse who aspires to raise her status and to socialize with the rich and famous people of Miami, but who deeply feels prejudice and condescension coming from some of the rich folk.


    Any additional comments?

    I really cared about the characters, and I enjoyed Tom Wolfe's prose and dialogue, so beautifully performed by Lou Diamond Phillips.
