A Fatal Errand

A novel by

You never know where you'll end up...

John Clayton was touring the world but became involved, somewhat against his will, in guerrilla activities in a small Central American republic, recently taken over by a military junta.

After a while he acquired a taste for the life; for the excitement, the danger, and above all for the companionship of the delightful Margarita.

However, later the taste was to turn sour as he experienced double-dealing, betrayal, arrest and the threat of a firing squad...
