Recently married, Gail Connor hopes to learn more about her husband by visiting Cuba, his ancestral home. Anthony Quintana's loyalties are divided between his family, believers in the Revolution, and his friends, including dissident writer Yolanda Cabrera. No one is aware that Yolanda's twenty-year-old son, Mario, belongs to an underground group plotting the assassination of a Cuban general. The night before Gail and Anthony leave for Havana, the CIA pays a visit. They want Anthony to deliver a message to General Ramiro Vega: He is in grave danger, unless he defects. Why is Vega so important? The answer leads to the discovery of a secret terrorist threat, and a love from the past that could tear Gail and Anthony apart.
