Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Political Thriller
Will Munoz is a San Francisco attorney who represents high paying slick clients. While sitting in a deposition, he asked himself how he became this person. He receives a troubling letter from his mother that leads him on a quest. His mother believes her ex-husband killed her first husband, Will’s father Ricardo Munoz. His father was a Chilean writer who wrote and spoke against the former Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet.
Will enlists the help of Travis and Cheryl, his two best friends from college and coworkers. His journey takes him to places he never expected and he reminisces about his childhood before and after his father’s murder. He must find the answers before another liberal is murdered.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The intrigue of the story made it difficult to put the book down. In fact, I read it in one sitting. The mixture of fact and fiction made the story believable. The author’s writing style is easy to read and I did not want to put it down.
The book is written in first person present tense with memory flashbacks. I would recommend this book to anyone that appreciates a good mystery thriller with suspense. Although Will is an attorney, I would not classify this story as a legal thriller but more of a political thriller.
