Reward takes the reader behind the scenes of an international manhunt and an unusual lawsuit that rattled law enforcement in three countries. The story is born out of a real-life spy thriller--the flight of Peru's notorious National Security chief, Vladimiro Montesinos, who was accused of many crimes. The lawsuit, Jose Guevara v. Republic of Peru, was brought by a Venezuelan spy who claimed Peru's $5 million reward after he was caught in an FBI sting attempting to extort a Miami banker to release Montesinos' dirty money. The next day, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez triumphantly announced Montesinos' capture and extradition to Peru. What happened in Guevara's jail cell is an untold story that is the key to whether Guevara earned Peru's reward. Cymrot took over Peru’s defense after the U.S. Court of Appeals had rebuked Peru for "welch[ing]"--reneging—on its promise to pay Guevara the reward. He uncovered a story that “read like the latest spy thriller,” according to the court’s second opinion. As this tense story unfolds, Reward provides insights for courtroom spectators into the art of persuasion, strategies for cross-examination, and storytelling. WORDS OF PRAISE In his latest book, attorney Mark Cymrot takes readers on a personal journey to the front lines of an international legal battle brimming with suspense and intrigue. From the streets of Lima, Peru to the courtrooms of Miami, the gifted attorney is locked between his quest for justice and the rules of the game, as he pushes through a thicket of obstacles, making his moment of victory quite memorable. This is a true adventure story spiced with the plot twists, dodgy characters, and marvelous intricacy of a mystery novel. Ann Hagedorn, former Wall Street Journal staff writer and award-winning author of six narrative nonfiction books, including Sleeper Agent: The Atomic Spy in America Who Got Away. br> Reward was so compelling I read it from cover to cover without putting it down. Terrorism, spies, bribery, FBI agents, chiefs of state, politicians, and bankers became part of Peru’s history during the events that became part of the lawsuit Jose Guevara v. Republic of Peru. Mark Cymrot proves that he is not only a great lawyer fighting until the end to win a case but also to be a great writer and a historian. Jose Abramovitz, Peru's Vice Minister of Energy (1985-86), President of Peru's Negotiating Committee for New Oil Contracts, Senior Advisor to Peru's Minister of Interior (2008-09) A fascinating and well-told tale of real-life intrigue involving spies, foreign governments, terrorism, and transnational litigation from a U.S. litigator's unique perspective. David P. Stewart, Professor from Practice, Georgetown University Law Center, co-Reporter, Restatement (Fourth) Foreign Relations Law of the United States (2018) ...I was enthralled by how Mark navigated the political and legal tightrope in succeeding in thwarting Jose Guevara's attempt to collect Peru's reward. This wonderful read tells how law, politics and public relations all play a factor in litigating cases, particularly cases that attract international interest.... Johnine P.
