A timely international thriller by the former deputy assistant secretary of state and bestselling author. When four American sport fishermen stray into Cuban waters and are promptly arrested by Castro's navy, State Department crisis manager Judd Ryker finds himself called in to negotiate their release. But the more Ryker digs in to the situation, the more things he discovers that just don't seem to fit, especially now, with relations between the United States and Cuba supposedly thawing. Who are these men really, and what were they doing there? What is Ryker's actual mission, and what is his own government hiding from him? Some people want the new initiative to succeed. Others want to stop it at any cost. Still others see it as an opportunity for something much more radical. The common factor for every one of them: the time to act is right this minute. The ghosts of Havana are walking, and Ryker is caught in the middle of them all.

"A modern-day Cuban Missile Crisis takes shape with Judd Ryker caught in the middle. Narrator Piter Marek handles all the voices in this political thriller with very specific portrayals--meaning, he goes beyond simply using high and low tones for the men and women. A congresswoman is given a sharp, angry voice everytime she speaks, which is perfectly fitting for her character. Several captured Americans exhibit a range of steady tones, worried voices, and nervous-sounding dialogue. Marek also shifts between the protagonist's usually steady voice and a Cuban liaison's casual, almost singsong, accent without missing a beat. Marek enhances a decent book with his solid narration.
