This novel explores probably the most striking tales within the entire historical past of 20th century terrorism. Colonel Rejas was once the policeman charged with the duty of shooting the Peruvian guerilla chief Ezequiel, yet having been disregarded he reveals the load of silence and secrecy too heavy. On assembly Dyer, a overseas correspondent, he's moved to narrate the tortuous development of the manhunt for the 1st time. The Dancer Upstairs is a narrative equivalent to Graham Greene and John le Carré - demanding, elaborate and heartbreaking.
