About the Book

SAN CAFÉ casts a ribald, satirical eye on Latin American leftist politics and American corporate greed. Security consultant Bobby Gatling anticipates a working vacation in the Central American nation of San Cristo. But revolutionaries challenge a government controlled by Bobby’s client, Mobys Inc., the world’s largest coffee retailer.

A jungle ambush and the disappearance of an Italian priest deepen Bobby’s involvement. He must lead a challenging manhunt while dealing with a Marxist presidential candidate fond of gourmet cooking, a delusional Cristano army officer, bloodthirsty American mercenaries, a purple-haired Italian journalist-diva and Mobys’ domineering CEO—as well as Bobby’s nominal boss, the beautiful, gun-toting Maria Skavronsky.
