In the Heat by Ian Vasquez
Belize was a tough country to find a book for. Almost everything was a travel guide. There were a few history books, but they looked way too long and academic, so I settled for this mystery novel which takes place in Belize. Unfortunately, the author doesn’t really spend much time describing the country except for several one-off comments – mostly about Belize’s third world status.
Overall, the plot is not bad. I rarely say this, but this book was too short. There wasn’t enough time to get to know the cast of characters, and it ended just when it started getting good. The book was action-filled, yet not action-packed. All in all, it was a basic relaxing read. Nothing memorable, so I’ll pass on the quotes.
