David Lindsay\'s \"Body of Truth\" truly conveys the atmosphere prevailing in Guatemala during the last 40 years and especially the time of the just concluded civil war. It is highly realistic, true to time and place in that it enmeshes the characters in the nightmare of crime, politics, and war. I enjoyed this book tremendously, even as it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!
