The Jaguar: Book summary and reviews of The Jaguar by T. Jefferson Parker
The Jaguar Summary
Erin McKenna, a beautiful songwriter married to a crooked Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy, is kidnapped by Benjamin Armenta, the ruthless leader of the powerful Gulf Cartel. But his demands turn out to be as unusual as the crumbling castle in which Erin is kept. She is ordered to compose a unique narcocoriddo, a modern-day folk ballad of the kind that have recorded the exploits of the drug dealers, gunrunners, and outlaws who have highlighted Mexican history for generations. Under threat of death, Armenta orders Erin to tell his life story - in music - and write "the greatest narcocorrido of all time." Allowed to wander the dark hallways of the castle retreat with only a guitar and a mysterious old priest to keep her company, Erin must produce the most beautiful song that these men have ever heard.
The Jaguar Reviews
"Starred Review. A somewhat opaque subplot involving the dodgy Mike Finnegan... distracts only slightly from the quest for Erin in a crime thriller notable for its fine, insightful prose." - Publishers Weekly
