Synopsis: Mexico City was the Casablanca of the Cold War-a hotbed of spies, revolutionaries, and assassins. The C.I.A.'s station there was the front line of the United States' fight against international communism, as important for Latin America as Berlin was for Europe. Investigative reporter Jefferson Morley traces Winston Mackinley Scott's remarkable career from his humble origins in rural Alabama to wartime G-man, to O.S.S. London operative, to right-hand man of C.I.A. Director Allen Dulles, to his remarkable reign for more than a decade as virtual proconsul in Mexico. He reveals how Scott ran hundreds of covert espionage operations from his headquarters in the U.S. Embassy while keeping three Mexican presidents on the agency's payroll, participating in the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and, most intriguingly, overseeing the surveillance of Lee Harvey Oswald during his visit to the Mexican capital just weeks before the assassination of President Kennedy.

Spanish Description: La Ciudad de Mexico fue la Casablanca de la Guerra Fria, un caldo de cultivo perfecto para espias, revolucionarios y asesinos. La oficina que tenia aqui la CIA era la linea de batalla de la lucha de Estados Unidos contra el comunismo internacional, tan importante para America Latina como Berlin lo fue para Europa. El reportero de investigacion Jefferson Morley rastrea la sorprendente carrera de Winston Mackinley Scott desde sus humildes origenes rurales en Alabama, pasando por las epocas de guerra como integrante de una fuerza de elite y operador de la OSS (Office of Strategic Services) de Londres, amigo cercano del famoso Kim Philby, mano derecha del director de la CIA, Allen Dulles; hasta su reinado de mas de una decada como proconsul virtual en Mexico. Morley tambien emprende la busqueda del hijo de Win Scott, Michael, para confrontarlo con la verdad: su padre era un espia. Revela como Scott, ya mayor, dirigio cientos de operaciones encubiertas de espionaje desde sus oficinas en la Embajada de Estados Unidos mientras mantenia en nomina a tres presidentes mexicanos que participaron en el fiasco de Bahia de Cochinos; y más sorprendente aun, la vigilancia de Lee Harvey Oswald durante su visita a la capital de Mexico semanas antes del asesinato del presidente Kennedy.
