As a police launch speeds across Miami s Biscayne Bay with officer Nestor Camacho on board Tom Wolfe is off and running. Into the feverous landscape of the city, he introduces the Cuban mayor, the black police chief, a wanna-go-muckraking young journalist and his Yale-marinated editor; an Anglo sex-addiction psychiatrist and his Latina nurse by day, loin lock by night until lately, the love of Nestor s life; a refined, and oh-so-light-skinned young woman from Haiti and her Creole-spouting, black-gang-banger-stylin little brother; a billionaire porn addict, crack dealers in the hoods, de-skilled conceptual artists at the Miami Art Basel Fair, spectators at the annual Biscayne Bay regatta looking only for that night s orgy, yenta-heavy ex-New Yorkers at an Active Adult condo, and a nest of shady Russians.
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. "
