The obvious result of a great deal of investigative work, Murder in America was a veritable foray into a strange world of Cuban gangsters, corrupt Florida politicians and rogue CIA agents, or more accurately, CIA officers. (One of the myriad interesting insights from this book is that CIA employees are known as officers; only 'assets' are known as agents.) The story spans several decades and has the lurid and ambiguous Florida as a captivating backdrop.
It's a disturbing expose of a world that, if you love America sonny boy, you should rather not read.
Good writing. Insane characters and one of the more extended Kindle Singles. Ultimately, what made this book good for me was the fascinating insight into the dark undercurrent that powers the schizophrenic American Dream. Highly recommended.
How to Get Away with Murder in America: Drug Lords, Dirty Pols, Obsessed Cops, and the Quiet Man Who Became the CIA's Master Killer is just such an feature story. It is the equal of the very best of his previous crime related features, which were collected in the very well reviewed Hella Nation: Looking for Happy Meals in Kandahar, Rocking the Side Pipe, Wingnut's War Against the Gap, and Other Adventures with the Totally Lost Tribes of America. Wright called this collection a "sort of autobiography", and his deep immersion in the drug trade in Miami gives every indication that there is a bit of Wright in How to Get Away with Murder in America as well.
Fast paced, beautifully written, dark, demanding attention from the powers that be -- this is everything one could ever want in a Kindle Single.
