Description de l’éditeur
Is the man who blows up an airplane and kills dozens of civilians a murderous terrorist... or a valiant freedom fighter? Is the man who tries to stop the bomber a threat to national security... or a hero of the people?
What Lies Across the Water is a narrative nonfiction thriller. About terrorists who blow up airplanes and try to overthrow governments. About intelligence agents who try to stop them.
The twist is that these terrorists are not Muslim. They’re Cuban exiles. And the men trying to stop them? Cuban intelligence agents.
What Lies Across the Water is an in-the-moment narrative nonfiction thriller that tells the true story of five Cuban intelligence agents who were dispatched to Florida in the 1990s to stop militant Miami exiles from launching terrorist attacks against their homeland.
The book recounts the parallel, converging, diverging stories of the exile militants, Cuban intelligence officers and FBI agents as they clash in Havana, Miami and the Straits of Florida. The story moves from the streets of Little Havana to real Havana’s Tropicana nightclub, from the hotel bar at the Copacabana Hotel to the inner sanctum of the White House—and back.
What Lies Across the Water climaxes when Cuba’s intelligence agents—the Cuba Five—are arrested and sentenced to long prison terms while the exile terrorists go free.
