Summary: A rich, complex historical novel in the spirit of Graham Greene and John Le Carre, Killing Che is a personal and political thriller that pits history's most infamous insurgent against a conflicted and world-weary CIA officer. The year is 1967; Vietnam is in flames and half a world away few realize that a firefight on a jungle road in Latin America is the beginning of a new and secret war. In the �Nancahuaz�u Valley of Bolivia, international revolutionary Ch�e Guevara leads a band of guerillas determined to liberate a continent. Paul Hoyle, a CIA paramilitary officer, joins a team of operatives sent to crush the Bolivian insurgency. When a recovered backpack reveals that Ch�e is in command of the rebels, the stage is set for a duel between world ideologies. This powerful, tragic story transports the reader into the heart of the Bolivian jungle and into a world of noble truth and glorious aspirations. Pfarrer writes of love and defeat, loyalty and betrayal, and the tragic death of an ideal.
