Summary

Una historia casi ficticia de amor y espionaje en tiempos de Hugo Chávez.

En una Venezuela convulsionada por la revolución de Hugo Chávez, Moisés Naím teje una novela de espionaje y amor que nace de dos décadas de minucioso trabajo de documentación.

A través de las historias de Eva, espía de la CIA, y Mauricio, agente  del servicio de inteligencia cubano, el lector se sumerge en una adictiva trama de thriller que es, al mismo tiempo, la crónica de  una realidad que, a veces, supera a la ficción.

“¿Cómo se fabrica hoy una dictadura en Hispanoamérica? Un relato picante y veraz en la línea de Tirano Banderas, El Otoño del Patriarca o Yo, el Supremo, pero con más toques de humor y la CIA o Fidel Castro como estrellas invitadas”. -Fernando Savater
 
“Una novela que muestra la cara más cruda del populismo, y que llega más allá de donde un ensayo político podría llegar”. -Arturo Pérez-Reverte
 
“Más que negra, esta primera novela de Moisés Naim es una novela dialéctica. La lucha de los opuestos llega aquí a una síntesis que solo podía conseguir alguien que sepa todo de Venezuela y de las relaciones de poder en el mundo actual. -Héctor Abad Faciolince

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

An almost fictional story of love and conspiracy in the times of Hugo Chávez.

Eva López and Mauricio Bosco are in love. That’s nothing unique, except that neither of the two is who they claim to be: Eva works for the CIA and Mauricio for the G2, the Cuban intelligence service. Neither knows that the love of their life is their most ardent rival.
 
Two Spies in Caracas reveals the two spies’ efforts to influence the revolution that Hugo Chávez is imposing on Venezuela and trying to export to the rest of Latin America.
 
We follow Eva and Mauricio while they discover the tactics and secrets of a government that wants to change everything, and together we peer behind the curtain that hides the private life of Chávez, the alluring Venezuelan leader. The story is full of fascinating characters who transport us to the center of power and money, as well as the front line of the battles waged daily by those who have nothing to lose.
 
This is a work of fiction, but the story is inspired by more than two decades of research, as well as Moisés Naím’s direct access to the best-informed sources about what happened in Hugo Chávez’s Venezuela and its mechanics, its details, and its furtive acts of populism. A surprising, masterfully narrated story that will leave no one indifferent.
 
Two Spies in Caracas is a novel of espionage intertwined with a love story subverted by the passions and betrayals of a revolution.
