Ghosts of Havana
When four American sport fishermen stray into Cuban waters and are promptly arrested by Castro’s navy, State Department crisis manager Judd Ryker is called in to negotiate their release. But the more Ryker digs in to the situation, the more he discovers that things just don’t seem to fit, especially now, with relations between the United States and Cuba supposedly thawing.
Who are these men, and what were they really doing? What is Ryker’s actual mission, and what is his own government hiding?
Some people want the new initiative to succeed. Others will stop it at any cost. Still others see it as an opportunity for something much more radical. The Ghosts of Havana are walking, and Ryker is caught in the middle.
