Can Frank outwit Cuban operatives bent on killing him? Will he again overcome the forces of evil? A tale of tender love, devastating loss, and the life-saving power of friendship.

When destiny knocks, do you open the door.

My old boss was a Cuban refugee, and I remember some of the stories he told me about his dad and the bay of pigs, some of the attacks Castro ordered on his own population were very similar to this book. The book is tragic, heartbreaking, with a lot of strength shown in the human spirit.

Riveting & thought provoking

Gave me a much better understanding of the plight of the Cubans under Castro and why they have given up hope for a better future. So very sad.
