Sylvia Duncan has recently departed post-communist Czechoslovakia to come to Amsterdam, at the invitation of Nico DiCapelli. Instead, she runs into Salvadore San Martín and his motorcycle. Literally.
So begins a long and perilous chase across The Netherlands and Belgium, as they find themselves once again tangling with the deadly and unscrupulous Colombian drug lord, Eduardo Fuentes. But this time, there is another player in this dangerous contest, Salvadore’s brother, Raúl San Martín. There is no mistaking whose side Raúl is on, as he has earned the sobriquet “la mano izquierda” – the Left Hand of Eduardo Fuentes.
How does Salvadore figure into all this? And will Nico be able to untangle the conundrum before Sylvia once again falls under the control of the drug lord?
It’s a long way home, indeed. But some won’t make it home at all.
