Publisher's Summary

Rear Admiral Jake Grafton, the hero of Flight of the Intruder, returns as the United States and Cuba engage in a terrifying game of brinkmanship, a gamble that could break the last military taboo and destroy both countries. In Cuba, an ailing Fidel Castro lies dying. Across the Straits of Florida, an anxious U.S. awaits the inevitable power struggle, determined to have a say in who controls this strategically invaluable island. And the American President has an added reason for concern: an Arms Control Conference has just begun in Paris and, unbeknownst to either the American public or Cuba, the U.S. has hidden secret weapons inside the American base on Cuba's Guantanamo Bay. But no secret remains one for long, and when one of the Cuban factions finds out about the weapons, the excitement begins. Only Admiral Grafton, on an aircraft carrier off the coast of Cuba, knows the impending danger. Only Grafton can save America from a disaster that would make the Bay of Pigs look like child's play.

'Cuba' excels

In a long line of excellent books, Stephen Coonts has captured another fast paced, involving story.

Cuba

It was a good listen. The plot line was interesting but a bit stretched.It makes you wonder what is going to happen when Castro does die.

Exciting

Exciting, action packed. Jake and Toad save Cuba from the dreaded communists. I guess that's called "nation building?" The book is stimulating, if implausible. The reader mispronounces several words: "Hue City" is pronounced "hue" vice "whey", for example. That grates on me. Do your research! Where's my next Coonts book?

A great read - much too short

Simply a great book - completely absorbing, I wish it had been longer.

Another good read by Coonts

Typical Coonts. I've read almost all his books and have never been disappointed. It would be interesting to hear what he would do with this subject today.
