Live-aboard sailor Jake Cousins has no choice: his daughter is in Havana as an agent for a South Florida Cuban exile group and she has been discovered by the Secret Police. Jake must sail to the forbidden island to attempt to rescue her.
Although a fictional account, this novel of intrigue and adventure is based on true events and situations and well-researched Cuban history. The author has sailed a small boat from New England to Havana and spent a month in Marina Hemingway researching his first Cuba-based book, SAILING TO HEMINGWAY'S CUBA.
Eva told him every detail of her encounter with Felix "She won't know who to trust. Felix is going to get out of here as fast as he can, but unless he goes by boat or private plane he has head for another country before Cuba. I don't know how Pilar can get back out...they'll be watching the airports."
Jake took her hands and gently massaged the back with his thumbs. "Chino thinks the only way to get her out of Cuba is to sail over in the boat and smuggle her out. If I went to Havana, how would I find her?"
Eva couldn't believe what she was hearing. "You can't go to Cuba."
"She's my daughter, too. I can do this." .....
As Jake walked out of the cool hospital into the muggy Florida night he wondered where Felix was now. Where had he gone after he shot Eva?
