Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"At the center of the novel is Carlos Manuel (alias Roberto), who for two decades has built his reputation - and guarded his anonymity - as a Cuban special services agent in Africa and Latin America. When his wife dies, he returns to Havana to discover his country's economy in disarray, along with its intelligence infrastructure. Widowed and jobless, he finds himself completely alienated from his children, and from the country he has served." "After his kids embark on a disastrous raft ride to the U.S., Carlos Manuel steals a yacht and sails after them into the stormy Atlantic. A last-minute decision saves his children, but leaves him stranded in Miami - just one step ahead of the CIA, for whom he is a murder suspect, and Cuban Intelligence, who mistakenly believe he has defected. Complicating matters is Sidney King, a maniacally vindictive CIA bureaucrat. The hunter becomes the hunted as Carlos finally encounters his old nemesis - and the ravaging violence of his former life."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
