Senor Vivo and the Coca Lord by Louis de Bernières (1991)
 Dionisio Vivo is fed up with the coca gangs and writes critical letters about it. El Jerarca, the coca lord, isn’t pleased and orders Dionisio killed. 
Second book in the Latin American trilogy and it was such a let down after reading the War of Don Emmanuel’s Nether Parts. But still it is a great book. It is probably because I hoped that it would continue with the the village. I also didn’t like how it mainly centred around Dionisio and his lover, Anica. I also found it less hilarious than the previous one.
Here’s hoping the Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman will make up for it.
