Rear Admiral Jake Grafton, the hero of Flight of the Intruder, returns as the United States and Cuba engage in a terrifying game of brinkmanship, a gamble that could break the last military taboo and destroy both countries. In Cuba, an ailing Fidel Castro lies dying. Across the Straits of Florida, an anxious U.S. awaits the inevitable power struggle, determined to have a say in who controls this strategically invaluable island. And the American President has an added reason for concern: an Arms Control Conference has just begun in Paris and, unbeknownst to either the American public or Cuba, the U.S. has hidden secret weapons inside the American base on Cuba's Guantanamo Bay. But no secret remains one for long, and when one of the Cuban factions finds out about the weapons, the excitement begins. Only Admiral Grafton, on an aircraft carrier off the coast of Cuba, knows the impending danger. Only Grafton can save America from a disaster that would make the Bay of Pigs look like child's play.

Listener Opinions

    " Good background reading for our trip to Cuba. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 6/14/2013

    " A great overview how Cuba has gotten to where it is today and why U.S. policy toward the Castro regime makes things worse for all involved. Sweig has a clear anti-anti-Castro bias, but does a good job making the case for it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 2/20/2013

    " Had to read this for school. Very informative, but lacked citations of evidence...just sort of stated things as if they were accepted facts. Also, stop saying "The lion's share" so much, Sweig. I never want to see that term again... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell | 10/3/2012

    " A wonderful introduction to Cuba. Very up to date and the question and answer format is a very effective way to introduce all the issues that come into play when approaching this fascinating subject. For such a small country Cuba plays quite a role on the world stage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 7/29/2012

    " Extremely helpful and put my visit there in context. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 José | 8/19/2011

    " One of the most fair and balanced treatments of this very controversial topic I've read. Everyone (the US, the Revolution, the exiles) is dished out some degree of criticism for making Cuba the dysfunctional mess it is today. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 8/17/2011

    " Broken down into questions and anwers. Good if you have a specific question in mind that you want to look up or know more about. Not too detailed and I did not love her writing style "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio book. I liked the Tommy Carmaelini books so I decided to check out a the Jake Grafton series. It was a good story less spy novel than Tomm Carmellini but more Commandos kicking butt. In the book Fidel Castro dies and Jake Grafton destroys all of "

    " very good book
    topical and interesting
    seemingly based on facts, if not then darn close to it
    you will definitely like it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 1/19/2011

    " Good read. Lots of action; fast paced. New guy - Tommy Camarillo. Who is Olaf, the guy Tommy shot? "

    " book on tape
    loved it!!!!!
    If only a Hector S was an option.
    I'd have given it ***** if there wasn't so much deep backgrop on Cuba... it seemed like more filler than necessary to the book and I wanted to get back to the story at hand.
    Terrific action. Great imagination!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 4/10/2009

    " It has been awhile since I have read any of the Jake Grafton Series that Stephen Coonts writes but this one was pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 2/25/2009

    " Not as action packed as I would like for a Jake Grafton series novel but overall it was good. The novel didn't give me that "can't put it down" suspense that most Coonts novels give me. I found myself reading it only when I had a few extra minutes to kill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 2/25/2008

    " Good quick read.
    Well written and reads fast.
    It is a fast moving book. A great little escape. "
