Set in 1967, Chuck Pfarrer’s Killing Che is about the somewhat mythical and even maligned historical figure Ché Guevara, with a fictional although believable CIA agent, Peter Hoyle, who is at once admirable and appalling.

With a fast-paced blend of historical detail and plausible imagination, Pfarrer makes Killing Che a wild ride through the enveloping Bolivian jungle with plenty of danger, intrigue and poignancy to please even the most jaded historical novel buff.

With well-developed characters and the ubiquitous “Mata Hari” types, the novel reads like a good old-fashioned mystery, thriller, and romance. When the human element of Che’s admirable yet unattainable dream slips from his ever-grasping hand, readers cannot help but feel touched by his devotion to and ultimate sacrifice for his beliefs. Whether you agree with Che politically or not, Pfarrer does a remarkable job of making you care about what happens to him as well as the way that it happens.

Killing Che is a blistering yet touching speculation on the little-known life of the compelling Ché Guevara.
