High in the towering Andes, a man is on the run, being chased as much by his own raging demons as by encircling army patrols. He is Ramon Cordes, the man many consider the greatest, and perhaps last, romantic revolutionary of our time. Cordes has been betrayed. But by whom? Was it Marguerite, the only woman he has ever loved? Was it Rojos, the Party leader who shares power with no one? Or was it Ramon himself—betrayed by his doubts, by his own mocking intelligence? With the same overwhelming force and savage eloquence that characterized his great Spanish Civil War novel, Hermanos!, William Herrick involves us in the relentless hunt for Ramon Cordes. The Last to Die is a uniquely contemporary and unforgettable story of the hunted and the hunters—and the violent destiny that awaits the man who chooses to live according to his own morality.
