Summary (From the publisher):

Christopher Marlowe Cobb ("Kit"), the swashbuckling early twentieth century American newspaper war correspondent travels to Mexico in April and May of 1914, during the country's civil war, the American invasion of Vera Cruz, and the controversial presidency of Victoriano Huerta, "El Chacal (The Jackal). Covering the war in enemy territory and sweltering heat, Cobb falls in love with Luisa, a beautiful young Mexican laundress, who is not as innocent as she seems.

The intrepid war reporter soon witnesses a priest being shot. Cobb employees a young pickpocket to help him find the identity of a sniper and, more importantly, why German officials are coming into the city in the middle of the night from ammunition ships docked in the port.
