9781493741687: Die for me Argentina

Liberated from her Catalonian upbringing, Angelica goes wild in San Miguel de Tucumán. Architect Fernando saves her from youthful promiscuity by marrying her. In his conservative family they have a son and she is pregnant again, when soldiers of the military Junta abduct Fernando to make him disappear. Struggling to find him, she learns all about their atrocious torture methods and becomes a target. Escaping to Montevideo, vowing to avenge her loss of her husband, she encounters Kevin on the ferry. To elude the Junta agents in Uruguay, Kevin changes her into Alicia de la Rosa, a flamboyant Spanish fashion plate. Disguised, she joins a club collecting documentation of those tortured by the Argentinean forces. She shoots an agent pursuing Kevin and they find refuge in Chile. They come under attack in Patagonia by Argentinian soldiers who Kevin kills and charms a Chilean officer to provide protection for them in Santiago where Alicia completes her psychoanalytical training and gives birth to a daughter. Further attempted attacks causes them to move to California where she completes her advanced degree to practice post-traumatic stress disorder therapy and marries Kevin. She sets up a practice in San Miguel hoping to find proof of atrocities with which to prosecute the Argentinean officers. She reverts to Angelica´s personality leading to errant sexual behavior, straining her relationship with Kevin who moves his business to Santiago as a safe haven for her and her therapy partner, Elena and buys a small Estancia just outside the city. With the outpour of information from the practice and growing archives of the Spanish Club, they collect ample evidence to prosecute key Argentinean officials. The defeat of Argentina by the British in the Falkland Islands brings the Junta to an end in 1983. The return of representative government initiates military to court marshals of Junta leaders. She and her advocate father-in-law, narrows their campaign to two cases involving two top generals. Alicia obsesses in her pursuit of key witnesses including a handsome soldier who seduces her in a series of cocaine loaded trysts. Kevin stumbles onto them having sex on the living room floor and presents Alicia with the clear alternative of behaving or leaving. Kevin gathers up his overdosed, bleeding wife and in the company of Elena flies her home to Santiago. The hospital prognosis for her recovery is unfavorable and Kevin is blamed for expecting too much from Alicia, in view of her dual personality problem. Their case against top generals for the theft of babies and murder of their mothers, reaches a guilty verdict with long prison sentences. Elated, Alicia recovers to rejoin Elena in their practice. She throws herself into helping her father-in-law counter legal motions to delay a verdict in their case against the Tucumán commander for murdering prisoners. The President resigns and incoming Peronist, Carlos Menem, halts all legal proceedings against Junta officers. Their hopes are dashed, Alicia´s emotional condition plummets and she slits her wrists. The loving care of Kevin and Elena produces minimal results. Finally, Kevin takes her to Spain to work with their partner in the Spanish Club to prosecute the Junta officers in absentia in Spain. The reveal repulsive deeds by the Junta. Facing reality, in 2005 Argentina opens its own justice system to prosecute to bring closure to its most reprehensible era of civil repression. Furious, political militants try to assassinate Alicia's father-in-law and sabotage Kevin´s airplane, causing a crash in which Elena dies. Deeply angered severely burned, Kevin goes on a media blitz against the former general. Weakened her father-in-law dies in his sleep and Alicia realizes, that she has essentially delivered on her oath causing her to turn inward. Redeemed in Kevin's eyes they return to California where they continue their mission, never to let society forget what happened in Argentina.

About the Author:

I was born in the northeastern part of South Africa near the Lebombo Mountains which forms the boundary with Mozambique. We lived in a Gold Mining town in the Drakensberg Mountains called Pilgrims Rest where my father was the District Surgeon. There was a steep pass down the precipitous edge of the gorge which led from a town called Graskop to the Bushfelt below which stretched out as far as the eye could see. That is the country that will always live in my soul. Amongst his black patients my father was known as ”siksikane,” the man with a knife. I came to North America as a young engineer with expertise in thermodynamics to go to work in the Canadian aircraft industry in the nineteen fifties during the Cold War when the object was to outpace the Soviet Union in defensive capability. For the next dozen years I was wrapped up in super-secret projects which was then the creative center of America. It all ended with the war in Vietnam which in history will be seen as America's nemeses. After that I made my living serving high tech industries with strategic planning services to diversify into non-defense areas. One of my clients hired me as the marketing member of a turn-around team and I hired a smart young Persian MBA who became a life-long friend Mark Amin involved me in his business ventures which took us into the motion picture field which proved beneficial to my family. I continued my engineering ventures in energy conservation. Living in Malibu turned me into somewhat of an environmentalist with practical ways of diminishing man´s footprints on mother earth. I began writing novels in the late 1990's based on my life's experiences. Love in the shadows of Apartheid Sharon Inge Die for me Argentina Sex & Love Trilogy Life in the Fast Lane of Championship Horse Shows-In Blind Faith Book 1 and 2 The Foster Care Dilemma, a series of editions exposing the dreadful problems afflicting foster children in our modern world today.
