Twilight of Heroes is a tale of international suspense set amid the recent drug wars in Latin America. The novel follows an American colonel plagued by his conscience, a female doctor fighting deadly odds, a dangerously arrogant American ambassador, a Bolivian playboy who falls in love with the woman he planned to betray, and a teenage assassin from the slums of Colombia. Ranging from the lawless South American backcountry to the halls of Washington, D.C., this is the finest novel--or work of any kind--written about the men and women whose fates are tied to politics, cocaine, and the gun.
