The place: A Latin American dictatorship, in which assassinations, torture, and poverty are the realities of everyday life. The time: 1980s, as the United States agonizes over whether to support General Juan Ferrer, whose corrupt regime is beginning to crack in the face of growing opposition. But Ferrer is Washington's man, a firm anti-Communist, the recipient of many favors from the CIA and with carefully cultivated connections in Congress. Into this volatile political drama comes the new US ambassador, a bright, courageous young woman - with a secret in her past that makes her vulnerable to the CIA. Julia Savage's "diplomatic immunity" is shattered as the opposition turns into open revolution and a passionate love affair places her at the center of dangerous intrigue. From deception in affluent Washington to betrayal in a squalid shanty-town, DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY reveals the politics of subversion in a convincing and powerful novel.
