Nelson DeMille is one of my favorite authors. The Cuban Affair was a good read, but a little slow paced, and anti climatic for my tastes. The story features U.S. Army combat veteran Mac” MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise.
Mac lives in Key West, and is the owner/runner of a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat. He is living the dream, but not making the money. His luck is about to change. Carlos, a hotshot Miami lawyer heavily involved with anti-Castro groups, approaches him in the famous Green Parrot Bar in Key West. Carlos wants to hire Mac for a ten-day fishing tournament to Cuba. Mac suspects there is more to this offer and turns it down. The price then goes up to two million dollars, and Mac agrees to hear the deal, and meet Carlos’s clients— Sara Ortega and Eduardo Valazquez. Intrigued by the mission, and Sara Ortega, Mac accepts the job, knowing he’ll walk away rich…or not at all.
