Abstract:

In this explosive follow-up to the Edgar Award finalist, Havana Lunar, Dr. Mano Rodriguez takes an undercover assignment to the most dangerous city in Latin America: Miami. During the summer of 1997, a series of bombings terrorize Havana hotels. The targets are tourists, and the terrorists are exiles seeking to cripple Cuban tourism and kill the Revolution. After Mano finds himself helpless to save one of the victims, his nemesis Colonel Emilio Perez of the National Revolutionary Police recruits him for the "Wasp" network, Havana's top-secret spy ring, and an operation that only this doctor can attempt. While two Cubas, capitalist and Communist, are held in a death grip, Mano gets caught in a maelstrom of depravity and deception, and he knows that if he does not complete his mission in time, hundreds of innocent lives will be lost--including one he cares for most of all.
