Sandinista Police Captain Ajax Montoya was once a hero of the Nicaraguan revolutionaries in their long uprising against the Ogre and his hated National Guard. But then Ajax took the fall for an assassination he had no part of, and tumbled into a bottle, and maybe out of his mind. Now he's a homicide investigator sweating through the nightmares from his guerilla days. When he's called to investigate a murder, Ajax recognizes the marks of a surprising enemy --- the CIA mercenary army known as The Contra. This isn't just a random murder; this is an execution, a call to war. Or is it? As the bodies pile up, Ajax questions whether he can stay sober, sane, and alive long enough to figure it all out.
