About this book
Delany hit a shabby Mexican man with his car, yet did not report the accident or take the man to hospital. He stayed in his Californian privilaged fortress and just gave the man twenty dollars. Candido then staggered back to the Canyon where he and his pregnant wife were living rough. A "Grapes of Wrath" for the nineties.
When Delaney Mossbacher knocks down a Mexican pedestrian, he neither reports the accident nor takes his victim to hospital. Instead the man accepts $20 and limps back to poverty and his pregnant 17-year-old wife. But these two men are fated against each other, as Delaney attempts to clear the land of the illegal immigrants.
