A TELEGRAPH THRILLER OF THE YEAR ‘A wild ride’ Ian Rankin ‘Tough and uncompromising: you’ll be glad you read it’ Lee Child ‘Hilarious, gripping, poetic. I loved it’ Adrian McKinty, author of The Chain ‘Gripping from beginning to end’ Independent ‘Intoxicating and chilling’ Observer ‘Pacy and exciting’ Daily Telegraph ‘Vivid and lyrical’ Guardian ‘MacGabhann paints an extraordinarily vivid picture of Mexico, in all its seething, sweltering madness and beauty’ Irish Independent Nobody asked us to look. Every day, every since, I still wish we hadn’t. Jaded reporter Andrew and his photographer boyfriend, Carlos, are sick of sifting the dregs of Mexico’s drug war: from cartel massacres to corrupt politicians, they think they’ve seen it all. But when they find a body even the police are too scared to look at, what started out as just another assignment becomes the sort of story all reporters dream of… …until Carlos pushes for answers too fast, and winds up murdered, leaving Andrew grief-stricken and flailing for answers, justice, and revenge.
