Reviews
This is a chilling account of deceit, corruption and murder at the highest levels of power in Pakistan, an American ally. A carefully researched and compelling tale of tragedy masked as a government.--Tom Brokaw
One opens this book to learn more about what lay behind the tragic death of Benazir Bhutto and is immediately drawn into its context--the turbulence of Pakistan's politics and international relations going back to the foundation of the state. The book is essential reading for all who want to understand more about the state of Pakistan and the fate of one of its most talented daughters.--Helen Clark, administrator of UNDP and former prime minister of New Zealand
Muñoz has written a brilliant, incisive and page turning book--the last word on Benazir Bhutto's assassination. The murder of Benazir Bhutto shook a nation and the world but until now there has never been an authoritative explanation as to how and why she died. Muñoz comes closest to identifying those guilty of her untimely and tragic death, guiding us through the enigma and chaos that is Pakistan and the double dealing that sustains the tortured relationship between that country and the United States.--Ahmed Rashid, author of Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan
Like some of history's other high-profile assassinations, including that of John F. Kennedy, the killing of Benazir Bhutto remains cloaked in rumor, speculation, and suspicion. Heraldo Muñoz and his colleagues found skeletons in many closets, smoking guns in many hands...The story of their search makes for a gripping read, but far more valuable are the insights Muñoz elicits about the nature of Pakistani society and its political culture.--Zalmay Khalilzad, former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan
