Publisher's Summary

The Counsellor is the story of a lawyer whose desire to get rich, in order to impress his fiancée, leads him to become involved in a risky drug-smuggling venture. His contacts in the high-stakes cocaine trade are the mysterious Reiner and the seductive Malkina.
As the action crosses the Mexican border, things become darker, more violent, and more sexually disturbing than he could ever have imagined.

This is a screenplay - not a novel

Was expecting a book not a screenplay - makes it very hard to follow and with only one narrator (rather than actors) it gets very confusing! Lasted about 15ins before I gave up.

TheSame Old Clichets

It is a screenplay. Who wants to read screenplays? Fans of Mr. McCarthy perhaps. The usual stuff: heard-it-all-before dialogues, boring technical details, endless roads at the Mexican border. And helplessly repetitive descriptions of our malevolent world. All in all a cheap, spiritless Tarantino-afterthought with too much Spanish talk. Don't waste your time and credits on it. If you want McCarthy, purchase The Road and nothing else.
