Editorial Reviews

Review

"Morley's book brilliantly explores the mystery of [what the CIA knew of Oswald's Mexican activities]. . . . Morley uncovers enough new material, and theorizes with such verve, that Our Man in Mexico will go down as one of the more provocative titles in the ever-growing library of Kennedy-assassination studies. . . . [It is also] an enthralling account of Scott's career as one of America's most accomplished spy masters. Morley memorably depicts not only Scott's espionage exploits, from London in World War II to Mexico City at the height of the Cold War, but also his complicated love life and his ambitions as a poet."--Wall Street Journal

"Extremely well researched, thoughtfully presented, and crafted with laudable forthrightness, with often painful insight and not a few lingering questions."--The OSS Society Journal

"An interesting book about a complex man dealing with sensitive issues in and out of government."--Intelligencer: Journal of U.S. Intelligence Studies

"Journalist Morley reveals the incredible career of Winston Scott, who, among other posts, served as station chief for the CIA in Mexico City for over a decade in the 1950s and 1960s. Scott was there for the Bay of Pigs, and he was there when his people followed Lee Harvey Oswald around the city just prior to November 1963. Scott allegedly had at least three Mexican presidents on his payroll and generally had the run of the city while overseeing covert espionage actions throughout central America. Morley's tale is well told and helps us get a peek inside the highly secret world of Cold War spying. Our limited knowledge of the era's espionage activities in the Western Hemisphere is greatly enhanced by this account. For all collections devoted to the Cold War and espionage."--Library Journal

"A literary triumph that uncovers some of the darkest secrets of state while also revealing the human cost of a life led in service to that secrecy."--Nina Burleigh, author of A Very Private Woman: The Life and Unsolved Murder of Presidential Mistress Mary Meyer

"Every decade or so, a talented writer provides a genuinely new glimpse into the CIA's shadowy history. Morley's account of legendary spymaster Winston Scott chronicles a life led in secret, stretching from the agency's founding through Scott's tenure as station chief in Mexico City. Morley tells this story with literary energy and an eye for the dark moments when intelligence stops making sense."--Thomas Powers, author of The Man Who Kept the Secrets: Richard Helms and the CIA

"Here is a rare thing, a biography of a C.I.A. chief that neither dodges shameful truths nor throws gratuitous mud. Packed, to boot, with genuine revelations about the crime of the century--the assassination of President Kennedy. A tour-de-force!"--Anthony Summers, author of Not in Your Lifetime
