Abstract:

The year is 1961, the setting Havana. CIA super-secret agent Blackford Oakes is sent there on a mission only to find himself in the eye of an international political hurricane. President Kennedy, who has selected Oakes to meet with the Che Guevara inside Castro's Cuba, has contrived a daring plan?dubbed Operation Alligator?that will hopefully bring about an era of detente in East-West relations. The communists, however, have another agenda: a double-cross that has terrifying consequences. Soon Oakes is trapped in Cuba, and the heat is on. Warming the climate greatly is the sultry beauty Catalina. The weather forecast: betrayal, power politics, and sudden death.
