The frantically paced intriguing plot of `El Dorada Blues' is set in appealing Baja California and there are numerous highly colourful and bizarre characters - yet the novel is only average - and hence 3-star rating. Based on the search for legendary treasure the reader may expect a mystery - but it is merely a set of `twists and turns'. `El Dorada Blues' is an awkward read which bounces along rather than unfolds logically, and though eventually merging, narration is as separate stories with the conclusion relying on a series of `Epilogues'. Perhaps best described as a `poolside holiday read'.
