Review

Major Ramon Linares, who has served with the Cuban army in Africa and
the Middle East, is angry and disillusioned when he discovers that his
government is withdrawing from the conflict in Yemen. To keep the
revolution against capitalism alive, Ramon becomes involved in a
campaign of terrorism against the United States. Closely on his trail is
American agent Michael Conroy, always one step behind Ramon as the story
moves to its startling conclusion.

This fast-paced, intense, and well-plotted novel is a must for
adventure/espionage fans.
