Historian-Author Writes a Fiction Set in 20th Century Argentina
Fictitious tale of suspense and romance is coming to BEA 2016.
“You will find yourself in a thoroughly engrossing tale that keeps you rooting for Peter Benton, the affable young G-Man, to get to the top unscathed.”
Richard J. Walter’s Twisted Tango takes inspiration from a major turning point in the history of Argentina and its relations with the United States.
The story revolves around Peter Benton, who is sent to Buenos Aires to investigate a suspected wrongdoing by the local office manager of a foreign film distributor. Simultaneously, he reunites with his old friend who recruits him to spy on the most powerful figure in Argentina and his young mistress. With two missions at hand, Benton is locked in a perilous game of diplomacy, political conspiracy, and treachery.
One satisfied reader from Amazon comments, “You will find yourself in a thoroughly engrossing tale that keeps you rooting for Peter Benton, the affable young G-Man, to get to the top unscathed.”
