What happens when Fidel dies? Cuba explodes. Political turmoil engulfs Cuba. As the Castros' rendezvous with mortality finally arrives, FBI Agent Nick Castillo is swept up in a maelstrom of espionage, intrigue and guerrilla war. Amazon Kindle Bestselling author James Bruno delivers another knockout thriller! Cuba roils with political unrest as Fidel and Raul Castro sink deeper into dementia and failing health. In a desperate ploy to save the communist regime, sultry Cuban spymaster Larisa Montilla takes on the CIA in a tit-for-tat shadow war of assassination. As the bodies pile up, FBI Agent Nick Castillo defies orders and travels clandestinely to Havana. Nick gets more than he bargained for, falling into a trap set by Montilla, Fidel's heir to power. But Montilla's leverage over Nick is matched by his discovery of a deep secret in her past, leading to a war of wits. Nick returns to ferret out a web of spies deep inside the U.S. government which Havana has patiently built up over the years -- traitors who are hemorrhaging official secrets. But he must navigate a wilderness of mirrors that leads him to an assassination plot against the Castros' No. 1 enemy - the President of the United States. Steeped in the world of government secrets, with service in Cuba and Gitmo, the author makes you feel like you've been cleared into a Top Secret program, confident that you have the inside information.

Cuba, an island 750 miles long, with a population of about 11 million, lies less than 100 miles off the U.S. coast. Yet the island’s influences on America’s cultural imagination are extensive and deeply ingrained. In the engaging and wide-ranging Havana Habit, writer and scholar Gustavo Pérez Firmat probes the importance of Havana, and of greater Cuba, in the cultural history of the United States. Through books, advertisements, travel guides, films, and music, he demonstrates the influence of the island on almost two centuries of American life. From John Quincy Adams’s comparison of Cuba to an apple ready to drop into America’s lap, to the latest episodes in the lives of the “comic comandantes and exotic exiles,” and to such notable Cuban exports as the rumba and the mambo, cigars and mojitos, the Cuba that emerges from these pages is a locale that Cubans and Americans have jointly imagined and inhabited. The Havana Habit deftly illustrates what makes Cuba, as Pérez Firmat writes, “so near and yet so foreign.”

Beautiful, yet mysterious and deadly, Pilar Rivera is forced into a life of kill or be killed. She has killer good looks and knows how to use them as she stalks and shoots the man who raped her in Havana when she was 16 – and becomes entwined in the crime of the ages. Rumored to be Ernest Hemingway’s Cuban daughter, Pilar is a female Jason Bourne, a woman without a country, loyal only to herself, who will kill for money but charges nothing for revenge. It’s an amazing tale of sex, murder and intrigue, set in the turbulent times of the Cold War, as it moves from Cuba to Russia, New York to Paris, Miami to New Orleans then on to Dallas that notorious day in November. The story swirls around two larger-than-life figures of the 20th century – John F. Kennedy and Fidel Castro – along with a parade of iconic personalities: Jackie and Bobby, Marilyn and Sinatra, Che and Raul, Oswald and Ruby, the rat pack, the mob, the CIA and Hemingway. It’s a fast-paced thriller, as told by Jack Ruby, the last man standing, the only person involved still alive – except for the girl who shot JFK.

“This evocative memoir is a joyous, rhythmic history” of the 11-sister dance band that broke musical and cultural barriers in 1930s Cuba and beyond (Publishers Weekly). In the 1930s, Havana was the place to be for tourists, ex-pats, celebrities, and excitement-seekers. Nights were filled with drinking, dancing, romance, and the roar of infectious music spilling from cafés into the streets. It was a time and place immortalized by Hemingway, and a macho mecca where only men took the stage. That is until Alicia Castro, a thirteen-year-old greengrocer’s daughter, picked up a saxophone and led her sisters into the limelight. With infectious melodies and saucy lyrics, the Sisters Castro—professionally known as Anacaona—became a dance-band of irresistible force. In her jubilant memoir, Queens of Havana, Alicia Castro tells of her incredible rise beyond her native city, to international stardom—swinging alongside legends from Dizzy Gillespie and Celia Cruz to Duke Ellington and Cab Calloway. In an age that insisted women be seen and not heard, Alicia Castro and her unstoppable sisters grabbed the world by the ears and got it dancing to their beat. At eighty-seven-years old, Alicia’s stories are intoxicating and gloriously punctuated with more than 100 vintage photos, posters, and other memorabilia in a book that “reverberates with exotic echoes of a fabulous long-ago era” (Publishers Weekly).
