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.

About the Author:

Tad Szulc was a journalist, foreign policy analyst and biographer. The author of more than 25 books, he was the winner of the Overseas Press Club Award and the Maria Moors Cabot Award for coverage of Latin America and was awarded the Legion d'Honneur. Born in Warsaw in 1925, he went to the United States following World War 2 and became a foreign correspondent for the New York Times for 20 years. At the Times, he covered Latin America -- where he broke the story of the impending-but-secret Bay of Pigs invasion -- American foreign and national security policy, and Cold War Europe, where he was present during the Soviet invasion of Czechosolvakia -- and was expelled by the KGB for his reporting. After leaving The Times, he enjoyed a prolific book writing career, which included his highly acclaimed biographies of Fidel Castro, and Pope John Paul II. He died in 2001.
