BACK TO BLOOD opens aboard a police launch speeding across Miami´s Biscayne Bay. A Cuban seeking asylum is teetering atop a ship´s mast, and it falls to Nestor Camacho, a young Cuban-American cop, to bring him down. His heroic feat gets him ostracized by his own family, and half his neighbors in today´s not-so-Little Havana--Hialeah. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that distinguished Tom Wolfe´s previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is a big, panoramic story of an American metropolis--a human comedy involving class, family, wealth, ethnicity, crime, sex, and race.
