On 27 December 2007, after an election rally in Rawalpindi, a suicide bomber fired shots at former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto and detonated explosives strapped to his chest. In a country ruled more often by military dictators than by elected governments, Bhutto offered a secular, democratic hope. Her assassination tore the country apart, destabilising the region. Leading an international inquiry, Heraldo Munoz delved into the murky world of Pakistani politics and the infamous Bhutto family. His investigation frames a story of betrayals, corruption, foreign influence, turbulent politics and political assassinations. With impeccable research and insight, Munoz situates Bhutto in a deep history of US-Pakistan ties and the emergence of global terrorism, pinpointing the assassination as the moment when US-Pakistani relations changed forever.
