    The Second Bat Guano War: a Hardboiled Spy Thriller

    From former Lonely Planet author J.M. Porup comes this gritty South American noir… Rats ate his baby daughter while he partied in a disco. Now Horace “Horse” Mann is a drugged-out expat teaching English to criminals in Lima, Peru. Oh, and doing the odd favor for the CIA. When his Agency contact, Pitt Watters, goes missing, Horse’s desperate efforts to find his only friend lead him to a Buddhist ashram on the shores of Lake Titicaca. There Horse uncovers his friend’s involvement with a group of Gaia-worshipping terrorists who want to kill off the human “disease” infecting the earth. Can Horse find his friend in time? And when he does—will he want to stop him? Hardboiled noir for fans of Roger Smith’s Cape Town novels.
