WOW! Blog Tour - Book Review of David Myles Robinson's "The Pinochet Plot"

About the Book...

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.

-----Review by Crystal J. Casavant-Otto

Let me start by saying I knew very little about Augusto Pinochet and his military dictatorship in Chile from 1973 until 1990. For this, I am embarrassed. I am also quite thankful for David Myles Robinson's book The Pinochet Plot because  it caused me to do some homework to find out more about the background of the book and this time period. I enjoyed the book, but due to my lack of knowledge and my need to know more, it was a slow read for me. I needed to know for myself the facts that were intricately woven into this work of literary fiction. (that's just me)

I enjoyed the writing style of The Pinochet Plot and thought Robinson did a very nice job overall (which is why I'm giving a 5 star rating). Great plot, great character depiction, and intelligent writing style. A book I'd read again as well as recommend to others.
