Bitter Fruit: The Story of the American Coup in Guatemala
by Stephen E. Schlesinger, Stephen Kinzer, John H. Coatsworth (Contributor), Richard A. Nuccio (Contributor)
The authors have written a history which reads like a thriller, detailing the dirty tricks, the manipulation of public opinion, and the corrupt foreign policy which characterized U.S. involvement in Guatemala. They show that this covert action became a blueprint for later incursions by the U.S. into Central America. The American engineered coup which overthrew the legitimate government of the day resulted in the genocide of thousands of innocent Mayan villagers - men, women and children were tortured and murdered -  a fact of which the American Government was in full knowledge and which it kept for decades from the American people. The military commanders responsible for the attrocities have not yet been brought to justice. Amazon.com

Final Silence
Final Silence
by Ronald Flores
Vividly capturing the troubled reality of war-torn Guatemala, this tale depicts a young psychology student who escapes to the United States. While abroad, and after learning of his brother's death at the hands of the military, he deals with his grief by establishing a center for victims of torture. Unable to adapt to a life abroad, he soon returns to Guatemala where he begins to offer therapy. One of his first patients is a military torturer desperate to emancipate himself from the guilt of his heinous crimes—one of which the psychologist soon learns is the murder of his brother. Embodying both sides of the terrifying 30-year
conflict in Guatemala, this compelling thriller explores the confused, postwar condition of unfulfilled reconciliation forever on the verge of recrimination.
