The RacketBook - 1990
Admirers of Graham Greene will find cause for celebration in the re-publication of this razor-edged, superbly honed novel. For like Greene, Anita Mason focuses her remarkable talent and piercing vision on human beings struggling for their lives and souls in a web of crime, corruption, temptation, and terror. A moral thriller of the first order, The Racket follows two people -- an idealistic young teacher and her corrupt cousin caught up in the darkly shadowed Latin American landscape of modern-day Brazil, a vast country on the brink of anarchic lawlessness on every level and bankruptcy both material and spiritual.
