A big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now.
BACK TO BLOOD opens aboard a police launch speeding across Miami's Biscayne Bay. A Cuban seeking asylum is teetering atop a ship's mast, and it falls to Nestor Camacho, a young Cuban-American cop, to bring him down. His heroic feat gets him ostracized by his own family, and half his neighbors in today's not-so-Little Havana Hialeah.
Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.
