Killing Castro

$13.99

In the sweltering summer of 1963, at the height of Cold War paranoia, CIA agent Robert “Bob” Maheu is sent to Cuba on a suicide mission aptly titled Operation Good Times: to humiliate Fidel Castro during a live television broadcast by dosing the dictator with LSD and making his beard fall out. But Bob bears the permanent scars of the MKULTRA program, a dark secret in the untold history of the United States’ clandestine services. Overseeing Bob's mission back home is Dr. Gottlieb, the mad mastermind behind the Mk-Ultra program which tried to turn Americans like Bob into remote-controlled killing machines. But as the devious doctor discovers, Bob's humanity and his red, white, and blue birthright to freedom and individuality remain just beneath the surface of his sock-puppet skin. This is the (mostly) true story of how one agency’s epic failure set the United States on a collision course with paranoia and peace.
