Item description for La cabeza de la hidra/ The Hydra Head (Spanish Edition) by Carlos Fuentes...

First published in 1978, this novel of international intrigue by Carlos Fuentes is set in Mexico, and features the Mexican secret service. It is the story of the attempt by the Mexican government to retain control of a recently discovered national oil field. Secret agents from Arab lands, Israel, and the United States attempt to wrest control of the source for their own purposes. In a plot thick with dirty tricks, violence, sex, amazing coincidences, and betrayals, the novel's movie-loving hero, Felix Maldonado, confronts the villains.

Description in Spanish: Novela policiaca que retrata al Mexico del boom petrolero y tiene como trasfondo una reflexion acerca de lo ilusorio de la libertad. Un burocrata es arrojado a un indescifrable torbellino de intriga y espionaje internacional donde se le despoja de su identidad, y descubre un siniestro juego de intereses. Como la hidra, el petroleo renace multiplicado de una sola cabeza cortada. Semen oscuro de una tierra de esperanzas y traiciones parejas, fecunda los reinos de la Malinche bajo las voces mudas de los astros Carlos Fuentes
