Earlier in the Kent Harrington's visit, someone drew a parallel with Le Carr駳 The Spy Who Came In From the Cold. I have recently seen the movie The Constant Gardener, also based on a Le Carr頮ovel. Having just reread Dia de Los Muertos, I could not help but draw a mental parallel between the end of both books: a harrowing escape in the desert, refugees/illegal aliens, the suicidal (or noir) hero standing alone in the desert waiting to be gunned down... I also likened it in my mind to Mr. Harrington's previous remarks, in connectiong to American Boys, where he extrapolated the killer-like behaviour of States/Governments to the one of your ordinary bad guy in noir novels.
