More About This Book

Overview

La Ciudad de México fue la Casablanca de la Guerra Fría, un caldo de cultivo perfecto para espías, revolucionarios y asesinos. La oficina que tenía aquí la CIA era la línea de batalla de la lucha de Estados Unidos contra el comunismo internacional, tan importante para América Latina como Berlín lo fue para Europa.

El reportero de investigación Jefferson Morley rastrea la sorprendente carrera de Winston Mackinley Scott desde sus humildes orígenes rurales en Alabama, pasando por las épocas de guerra como integrante de una fuerza de élite y operador de la OSS (Office of Strategic Services) de Londres —amigo cercano del famoso Kim Philby—, mano derecha del director de la CIA, Allen Dulles; hasta su reinado de más de una década como procónsul virtual en México. Morley también emprende la búsqueda del hijo de Win Scott, Michael, para confrontarlo con la verdad: su padre era un espía. Revela cómo Scott, ya mayor, dirigió cientos de operaciones encubiertas de espionaje desde sus oficinas en la Embajada de Estados Unidos mientras mantenía en nómina a tres presidentes mexicanos que participaron en el fiasco de Bahía de Cochinos; y más sorprendente aún, la vigilancia de Lee Harvey Oswald durante su visita a la capital de México semanas antes del asesinato del presidente Kennedy.
