ABOUT THE BOOK
They called her the “New Che Guevara”
Madrinega, 1983: At the height of the CIA’s war on Nicaragua, the U.S. sends General Eduardo Vilar, dictator of Madrinega, six cruise missiles to fight La Frente, his own insurgents. But when he uses one to destroy a hospital, the guerillas attack and seize the remaining weapons. Leighton, an American agent, goes undercover as a journalist to infiltrate La Frente, locate the missiles, and arrange their extraction before the guerillas can turn them on Vilar. His provocative reporting probing the hospital attack, while garnering credibility with the rebels, leads to a deadly encounter with Vilar’s Secret Police. The guerillas intervene to save him, and he encounters Zorrita, the dedicated revolutionary who leads them. The woman the CIA calls “the new Che Guevara” now holds Leighton’s life in her hands – but she too will kill him if she discovers his duplicity.
