About the Author

Mitch Weiss is a Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist for the Associated Press. In 2003, he was assigned to a series that uncovered the longest string of atrocities carried out by a U.S. fighting unit in the Vietnam War. In recognition of the series “Buried Secrets, Brutal Truths,” which led to an investigation by the Pentagon, he was awarded the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting. A series he wrote about corrupt real estate appraisers won several national awards in 2009. He also was part of a team of AP reporters that won a George Polk Award in 2010 for their coverage of the British Petroleum oil-spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
Kevin Maurer is the author and coauthor of several books, including No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden. Covering special operations forces for nearly a decade, he has been embedded with the U.S. Special Forces in Afghanistan numerous times and spent ten weeks with a team of Green Berets in Afghanistan in 2010. He has been embedded with American soldiers in Iraq, East Africa, and Haiti.
 

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This is the real story—extremely well told—of the unraveling of a guerrilla force and the patient and heroic team work of the men who brought down the iconic myth."—Enrique Encinosa, author of Unvanquished: Cuba's Resistance to Fidel Castro

"Weiss and Maurer have done it again...With memorable characters, rich detail and a fast-moving narrative, they bring us deep into the Bolivian jungle - and into a riveting story you will not want to miss." —Ames Alexander, award-winning investigative reporter with the Charlotte Observer

"Hunting Che provides a powerful portrait of an iconic revolutionary who fell prey to his own ego and passions and a US blacks ops team hellbent on his capture — and death."—Michael Sallah, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The Washington Post

“Veteran journalists Mitch Weiss and Kevin Maurer have tag-teamed on another nail-biter…They shed light on an important—largely misunderstood—operation with fairness, objectivity, and candor.”—Tom Henry, Toledo-based writer and book reviewer
