I was driven to our designated meeting place by her security chief and all-around fixer, Jose Pizarro, whose quiet warmth and casual style—close-cropped hair, mustache, polo shirt—did nothing to diminish his standing as a man to be obeyed.

Two men aimed guns at John’s head, ordered him out of the truck, and started forcing him toward their vehicle.

I thought the courts and authorities were certain to shut her away forever and split the 90million they had invested in the country. World's gone mad.
