As the police boat speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay, the scene is set for Officer Nestor Camanco's great moment of heroism. Except that in this feverous city, Nestor's act of heroism can also be seen as an utter betrayal of his uban roots.

As Nestor's world disintegrates - his family disowns him, he can't get a Cuban coffee without ugly stares, and his girlfriend Magdalena leaves him for her sex-addiction psychiatrist boss. The Cuban mayor, a Yale-marinated journalist, the black police chief, a Haitian professor whose ambitions to be French are thwarted by his Creole-spouting son, the clueless baying art-buyers and an Anglo billionaire porn addict all come up for scrutiny in Tom Wolfe's high-energy, scrupulous and hilarious reckoning with our times.
