I'm giving this a generous 2stars ....

The title says it all TERRIFYING TRUE STORY..
and terrifying it is..
So vile the main character is numb to how bad he really is...


Idk what it is about this book... No matter how I tried I could not get into it.. I LOVE BIOS (espicaliy ones that invoke juicy takes of action,fast lives, and villains as the main guys in the story's..) I know it was a story told to the author... But it was very confusing and somewhat distasteful... The main character was just so

Somewhat tedious but very interesting and informative

Robbins gives an interesting insight into assassin Carlos Evertz as told to him by Evertz in personal interviews. Only a portion of the book is devoted to Evertz, however. The latter portion concerns information gained from Miguel Perez who reveals inside information about the corruption of government officials in the Dominican Republic.

There are more than ten errors (but less than twenty) in this book.

I've stumbled apon this book by mistake and it was worth the read. The story revolves around Carlos, a Dominican Intelligence Officer who turns out to be an assassin, and his relation with the author. Beside, you are still able to see how the Inteligence Agencies operated back then and might still operate. If the story is indeed true, then we live in a really fucked up world.
