Who killed Benazir Bhutto? Possible suspects have ranged from the military dictator Musharraf to Pakistani security agents to Bhutto’s own husband. In Getting Away with Murder (W. W. Norton, $26.95), Muñoz, United Nations Assistant Secretary General, delves into the murky world of Pakistani politics and the infamous Bhutto family, who rival the Kennedys in charisma, power, and tragedy. His year-long investigation frames a story of betrayals, corruption, foreign influence, turbulent politics, and unsolved political assassinations—all of which led to the death of the country’s leading politician. With impeccable research and insight, Muñoz situates Bhutto in a surprisingly deep, decades-long history of U.S.-Pakistan ties and the emergence of global terrorism, pinpointing the assassination as the moment when U.S.-Pakistani relations were changed forever.
Muñoz will be in conversation with Washington Post’s Pamela Constable.
