Howard Jones provides a concise, incisive, and dramatic account of the disastrous attempt to overthrow Castro in April 1961.

National Peace Organization operative Paul Stepola walks a dangerous tightrope as a double agent; a new believer assigned to enforce the ban on religion. Three major cities have been attacked by terrorists and thousands have died, all in the name of God. Paul must somehow find a way to expose the source of the terrorism without endangering fellow believers. And with his unbelieving wife's powerful connections, Paul faces danger on every front.
