First Paragraph

 "Some of these people want to get killed," said Dicky Cruyer as he jabbed the brake pedal to avoid hitting a newsboy. The kid grinned as he slid between the slowly moving cars, flourishing his newspapers with the controlled abandon of a fan dancer. SIX FACE FIRING SQUAD; the headlines were huge and shiny black. HURRICANE THREATENS VERACRUZ. A smudgy photo of street fighting in San Salvador covered the whole front of a tabloid."

- From Mexico Set by Len Deighton
