An enthralling, deeply disturbing account of the assassination in Washington in 1976 of Orlando Letelier, Chilean diplomat and member of the Allende government. The responsibility of DINA, the Pinochet government's secret police, is amply described, as is the nature of right-wing terrorism in Latin America.
