They forged the signature of God
This vivid expose of corruption and political tyranny in the Dominican Republic rang so true to the reality that the President of that country went on TV to denounce the book. They Forged the Signature of God went on to become the best-selling book in the history of the Dominican Republic.
Sencion's novel follows the lives of three seminary students who suffer from church-state oppression. The book also gives a chilling portrait of Dr. Ramos, a sinister autocrat, who manages to survive six terms as president of his country through manipulation and tyranny. This finely textured novel gives a vivid picture of the internal politics of The Dominican Republic.

Review: They Forged the Signature of God: A NovelUser Review - Linda - Goodreads
The writing is often contrived in style, but the subject, the reigns of Trujillo and Balaguer, is well-presented. Probably not of interest to readers unfamiliar with 20th century Dominican Republic political history. Read full review
