KIRKUS REVIEW

The foreign Ambassador from a small African country wants to achieve martyrdom (he's dying of cancer anyway) only he needs a good assassin. He wants soldier of fortune Padillo to do it and then set it up so that it seems as if it was done by a fanatic American Negro (to promote apartheid.) But Padillo says ixnay until they kidnap his partner's (the narrator) wife. As unlikely as the plot.
