Missing By Thomas Hauser

Missing is the gripping true story of Charles Horman, an American journalist who disappeared after the American-backed coup that deposed the democratically-elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende. Later adapted into a film that was banned in Chile during Pinochet’s rule, this book brings Chilean history to life—and asks challenging questions about past American foreign policy.
