Publisher's Summary

An idealistic American doctor is imprisoned and sentenced to death in a corrupt Central American country. Now he must figure out a means of escape and rescue his beautiful wife, who has also been taken hostage - and is being tortured beyond imagination.

Trapped in a jail cell in a troubled Central American republic, Martin Springer, an idealistic U.S. volunteer doctor, faces execution. His "crime": having witnessed the massacre of an entire village by government forces. His beautiful and determined wife, Katherine, arrives in the country with money in hand to try and save him, but she too is arrested. Her crime: Resisting the advances of General Vaca, the sadistic head of the secret police. Her punishment: imprisonment and degradation in a low-class brothel. When word of his wife’s plight reaches Springer, somehow he must escape from his dungeon cell, find his wife and rescue her, and kill her tormentors and in the process shed some of his humanitarianism and take on some of the brutality of his captors.

What the Critics Say

"A gripping, powerful story." (The New York Times)
"A writer of enormous talent, a stylist to admire and a storyteller of great power." (Scott Turow)
"Faust writes beautifully…he reminds you of Hemingway and Peter Matthiessen….Faust has it all: lyrical prose, complex characters and provocative plots." (Booklist) "Faust’s clear, unadorned prose and his deft, pure characterization ring with the force of Hemingway or Graham Greene." (Publishers Weekly)
