Abstract:

"It's been seven long years since his people last tasted freedom. So when Cuban-born expatriate Tony Fenner finally returns to Havana, he joins the Organization, a small band of revolutionaries dedicated to ending the tyrannical rule of President Gerardo Machado. Aided by fellow rebel China Valdes, Fenner proceeds with his audacious master plan: to execute the head of the senate and then assassinate all of Cuba's leaders at his well-attended state funeral. And so, as the secret police race to stop them, Fenner and Valdes tunnel beneath the cemetery, where they intend to detonate a bomb so powerful, it will wipe out Machado's entire government with one blow."--Container.
