On top of that, an irritating watchdog starts barking her awake twice every night from his post on the roof of the house next door. Paco and Amelia, a gentle Zapotec couple who find a fashionably-dressed dead man in their corn field- Inocencio, Dona Millys sidekick and the manager of Casa Colonial- Rodolfo Sanchez, a retired gangster from Mexico City- and various hotel guests round out the colorful cast of characters. Kindly, pragmatic Dona Milly, Oaxacas Miss Marple, guides them all with energy, warmth and an irrepressible sense of humor.
