Gringos, by Charles Portis, 3/5

Gringos relates the random adventures and misadventures of American Jimmy Burns, a trucker, bounty hunter and expert in (and ex-looter of) Mayan artifacts, as his life in Mexico is complicated by a stalker, kidnapers, criminals, cult followers, archaeologists, and ufo theorists.  I would rate my enjoyment of this book between Portis’ The Dog of the South and Masters of Atlantis, though Jimmy is by far my favourite character from the three books.
