It is not another story about escape;it is captivating, entertaining, super interesting!Even though he is like Papillon, the stories are somewhat different.

un pais democrático al borde del colpaso, peleas intensas, feudales en busca de dinero norteamericano, repleto de accion incontenible.
Este libro es muy bueno en cuanto hablamos de graficos es de las mejores, además de que te mantendrá al borde del sillón jusgenlo por uestedes mismos, una historia única y realista.
