The true story of a series of bold killings which took place in a shadowy American expat community in Panama — a tale of greed, political history, and murder. Journalist Nick Foster brings this uniquely bizarre place to life; shedding light on a community where many live under assumed names — and sometimes people just disappear.

“. . . this bone-chilling account of a small-time criminal turned expat serial killer in the tropics will draw readers in with its charm before springing the trap. The depiction of beautiful beaches, scenic and lush surroundings and booze-filled parties belies the danger that lurks beneath the surface while the assiduously researched reportage expertly integrates the fascinating history of Panama — the politics, corruption and greed — into the tale of a dangerous sociopath. For fans of true crime in exotic locales and the rum-soaked adventures of Hunter S. Thompson.” — Bill's Bookshelf Selector, Bill Kelly
