A clandestine scheme to assassinate Fidel Castro spirals into paranoia, betrayal, and deceit in this dazzling thriller.
Former CIA agent Carolina Perez has spent five years working deep undercover with a singular goal: to take down Castro and free Cuba from his troubled presence. Across the Straits in Havana, Carlos Gutierrez is Castro’s minister of health and a member of his inner circle. Carlos has also been convinced to overthrow el Comandante, at great risk to himself and those he loves. But the indestructible dictator is surrounded by more than just the D-7 secret police: A Byzantine network of spies, double agents, and informants means nobody is who they seem. A thrill ride through Miami and Havana, Fidel’s Last Days sizzles with tension until the final word.
