    • Please note this book has been released in a 2014 ebook edition, with an introduction by Ariel Dorfman and a postscript by coauthor John Dinges to update the story.


    • Endlessly fascinating—this procession of characters, marching to the impetus of their own ideology, some in pursuit of human dignity, others possessed by a lust for power, and still more, Machiavellian in their devotion to riches and prestige. Obviously, authors Dinges and Landau shared their own devotion: Passion for investigation, fidelity to facts, and mastery of craft. With that, they are not mere messengers, nor are readers mere observers. We are taken, transported to international politi [...]


    • Beautifully written and edited account of a complex investigation. To secure a conviction in the Letelier bombing, the U.S. Justice Dept. agreed not to investigate the other crimes of DINA, Chile's secret police. The CIA also helped to conceal evidence. This would explain be why the case of the 1976 SC Mystery Couple was never officially resolved.


    • The recall of this account was truly amazing. Since I am much younger than when this book first came out, I have learned a great deal and am glad to have gained this knowledge. I recommend this book for those who enjoy history and want to improve current situations around the globe. Thank you for the opportunity to read this.


    • Well researchedWell written and extremely detailed. This book took time to digest and understand. Learning how the US interacts with countries and how we impact them should be taken into account in today's society.



    • It's shocking that outright terrorism occurred right outside the Chilean embassy in Washington DC, by direct order of Augusto Pinochet.
