""If anyone wants to read this book as a simple mystery novel, that's his business,"" sniffs Argentinean journalist Rudolfo Walsh in an epigraph. Bill Verner translates Paco Ignacio Taibo II's spare, literary Frontera Dreams: A Hector Balascor n Shayne Detective Novel, in which the one-eyed existentialist Mexican investigator searches for a lost love, ponders border crossings and drug traffickers, and communes with Pancho Villa's ghost along the ""green mesh fence"" separating the U.S. and Mexico.
