In a land of the disenfranchised one man must fight to regain his past, but in doing so he must also learn to find the truth about himself.David Salsa is a man on a mission. Sent to South America at a time when imported French beef severely undercuts the price of the national product, he finds himself embroiled in destabilising the economy in a plot that he barely understands. From the moment he is ushered into a shady cafe by a waiter who serves him a coffee he has not ordered, events begin to move beyond his control. From the conversation with the Superintendent of Police where everybody seems to be speaking a different language, to a surreal meeting with the Director, things are not exactly as they seem.His journey will take him from the bright lights of Buenos Aires to the coast and out into the vastness of a country too enormous to comprehend. Travelling sometimes with friends, sometimes with the beautiful call girl, Rosa, and sometimes alone, David must come to terms with his past. And he has become the chief suspect in a crime he is only just beginning to understand.In a country of indescribable beauty he encounters abject poverty, total corruption and the gentle good humour of those who are still fleeing the old world. And always ahead of him there is his daughter...
