Latin American Studies
Provides a brilliant indictment of the ineffective and corrupt police and intelligence services.
Times Literary Supplement
Gorriti's classic account of the Sendero Luminoso retains all its immediacy and explanatory power in this fine translation.
Gorriti reminds us of the forceful impact of serious investigative reporting and the risk journalists face to reveal the truth.

Forget all the preconceptions and hearsay you think you know about communist insurgencies. This book is an incredible humanistic and realistic relation of a turbulent opening to a total war. The book is highly readable and relentlessly interesting. Very highly recommendedWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
