Summary Note An unnamed South American country has just put behind bars its most notorious rebel leader, the man known as Ezequiel, whose bloody war against the state has cost thirty thousand lives. And the man responsible for his capture, the police officer Agustin Rejas, has been pensioned off to a government sinecure, sworn to silence. But when he meets John Dyer, a British journalist, in a restaurant, something compels Rejas to break his vow. He describes how, after years of tracking Ezequiel, he fin
ally determined the rebel leader was somewhere in the capital city. At the same time, Rejas was growing passionately in love with Yolanda, a beautiful dancer who was teaching his daughter ballet and whose commitment to her art was total. Narrating the final, tension-filled days of the manhunt, Rejas reveals the shocking truth that the headlines have missed.
