Description

History is just an assassin's bullet away…. In 1961 Professor Mikhal Lammeck, a specialist in the history and weaponry of assassins, has come to Havana. In Fidel Castro, he believes the world is witnessing that rarest anomaly: the man who can change history…and therefore must be murdered.

The wild CIA plots, the treacherous double crosses, the near-miraculous escapes, are already legendary. But with a massive U.S.-backed invasion of Cuba looming, a trap has been set that not even Castro can beat. The players in this deadly assassination endgame include organized-crime figures, CIA agents, the Cuban underground, Castro’s secret police, and a confused Marine sharpshooter. And, perhaps most unlikely of all, a distinguished history professor. Seamlessly blending history and fiction into an electrifying page-turner, The Betrayal Game is that rarest of all thrillers—a novel so vividly imagined, it might very well be true.
