The Pinochet Plot is dark and mysterious with a little bit of romance on the side
Successful San Francisco attorney Will Muñoz has heard of the brutal former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, of course, but it’s not until he receives his mother’s suicide letter that he has any inkling Pinochet may have had his father, Chilean writer Ricardo Muñoz, assassinated thirty years earlier.
Her suspicions spur Will on to a quest to discover the truth about his father’s death–and about the psychological forces that have driven his mother to her fatal decision. His journey takes him deep into unexpected darkness linking his current step-father, the CIA, drug-experimentation programs, and a conspiracy of domestic terrorism. The Pinochet Plot is not just a story of a man seeking inner peace; it is also a story of sinister history doomed to repeat itself.
I am going to be completely honest here. I like the book but again, the book kind of turned me off at the same time. If you like politics . . . This is the book for you. It mentions a lot of politics, as well as some other issues that I can live without. BUT, what I did like was the story. A man trying to find guy his mom married, and find out if he is the one who assassinated his dad over a book that they could not accept.
I give the book a 4/5. Just for the story alone, and I believe the story would be just as great without the political issues.
