Summary
"After fleeing his home in Bocas del Toro, Panama, William Dathan Holbert, aka "Wild Bill," is awaiting trial for the murder of five fellow American expatriates. Holbert's first victims were the Brown family, who lived on a remote part of the area's Darklands Peninsula. There, Holbert turned their property into the "Jolly Roger Social Club," using drink- and drug-fueled parties to get to know other ex-pats. The club's tagline was: "Over 90 percent of our members survive." But this is not just a book about Holbert and the financial and real estate motives behind the killings; it is about why Bocas del Toro turned out to be his perfect hunting ground, and why the community tolerated-even accepted-him for a time. Told through the fascinating history of Panama, a country with sinister ties to the political and economic interests of the United States, The Jolly Roger Social Club brings this uniquely bizarre place to life; shedding light on a community where many live under assumed names, desperate to leave their old lives behind-and sometimes people just disappear."--
