Publisher's Summary

Revere Falk - FBI veteran, Arabic speaker - is an interrogator at "Gitmo," assigned to a "hold-out," a Yemeni prisoner who may have valuable information about al Qaeda. But these duties are temporarily suspended when the body of an American soldier is found washed ashore in Cuban territory. No American has ever turned up dead on the wrong side of the fence before.

Suddenly, Cold War tension is back and Falk finds himself at the heart of it when he's put in charge of the investigation into the death. Almost immediately he senses an unusual level of interest in the proceedings: from his commander, from the Cubans, and from the various factions of the military. And when the Defense Intelligence Agency unexpectedly sends its own team to "reinforce" the investigation, Falk understands that there is much more at stake than anybody is willing to say.

Now, he is drawn into a game of evasion and pursuit, a game whose stakes spike dangerously when a figure from his past reappears - someone who knows secrets about him that he had hoped were buried forever.

Excellent

This is my favorite Fesperman novel so far, and I've read most or all of them. Twisty plot, interesting context (Guantanamo), not excessively grim. For most of the book it's not clear who the good guys are, but they end up winning. Colacci's performance is on target.
