Res ipsa loquitur: A lawyer's well-written and sober account of the American-backed coup in Chile, grounded in fact and careful to leave the speculation and gap-filling to the reader.

This fantastic book is written about the fate of an American journalist, Charles Horman, who was executed by the pseudo-nazi junta during the coup of September 1973 in Chile. Even before reading this book, I was sympathetic toward el compañero presidente Allende, his cause and his courage, but this book presented such a moving account of what had happened in those days that I somehow lived through it.
