From the cover: “This novel is set in ten weeks of terrorism in Caracas, splendid capital of an oil-rich country, soaring concrete city of skyscrapers and wide racing highways, by night perhaps the most strikingly illuminated city on earth. But the myriad crowded ranches of the very poor hang above it, from all its western mountains, tumbled and invading, the contrast they provide that of all Latin America, and source and symbol of its brooding lightning violence.
