“Useless Scars is the story of several characters joined by a common thread, which is their participation in the events of December 20th, 1989. Except for an encounter that turns out to be fatal, the characters do not know or run into each other throughout the novel. Each of them, however, would live and suffer in their own way the United States’ invasion of Panama. One of the characters, the Kuna Indian with the name Belisario Porras, would live for only a few moments the attack on the base of Rio Hato. The description of the albino Indian when his blue eyes “were lit forever” and the thrilling prose that follows is in my opinion the most beautiful part of the novel.”
