In typical disaster-movie style, Alison Littlewood sketches in the various larger-than-life characters in vivid prose...shortly before they all meet their various dooms. Well, most of them anyway. Think The Towering Inferno meets The Walking Dead (with more than a touch of Quatermass and the Pit thrown in) and you’ll get a flavour of what this story’s about. It’s set during the opening of the swanky Hotel Baktun in Acapulco (hence the tongue-twisting title) and in a very short time, the polished tile floors and limpid clear swimming pools become awash with blood and body parts.
