Synopsis

A Reluctant Warrior by Phyllis Owens

Author Phyllis Owens deftly pieces together the puzzle and extraordinary life of Manuel Velasquez, whose military career included the dangers at the 1968 massacre at Zocalo Square at Mexico City. Later, he was appointed bodyguard of Mexico's Presidente. During his rich and intriguing life, he was irresistible to beautiful women and a chosen few shared his life. This military and police career is emotionally charged, astonishingly powerful and surprising.
