October, 1972. Will Porter joins the CIA's secret war against Chile's Marxist president, Salvador Allende. Working under cover, Will's job is to manage the dirty money being used to fund the opposition and to disrupt the Chilean economy.

As protests, general strikes and paramilitary terrorism bring Chile to the brink of civil war, Will learns just how far the CIA will go to achieve its objective. A budding friendship with university student Ernesto Manning and his beautiful sister, Gabriela, complicates Will's job and threatens to blow his cover. In a turbulent world of deceivers and deceived, Will must choose between friendship and betrayal, truth and lies, love and duty.

Based on historical events, this compelling novel brings to life a tragic moment that changed the course of a nation. "It is not a part of American history that we are proud of," said Secretary of State Colin Powell.
