This classic noir story sees a young woman in a 20th Century banana republic dragged into a suspense-filled thriller - now in luxurious hardback featuring rich, intriguing colors for the first time!

Set in an early 20th century Banana Republic, a young woman's virginity becomes the center of a disturbing mystery which escalates into a national scandal. The story unfolds between her relationship with the man hired to help her, and the danger they find themselves in when an enigmatic lizard-hitman called The Iguana will stop at nothing to conceal the truth.
