Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this riveting book, Masetti takes the reader inside the war room of the Cuban revolution. His life involved international revolutionary intrigue: smuggling diamonds and ivory; counterfeiting U.S. dollars; trafficking in narcotics. He served in Angola and other war zones in the 1980s. He was an adviser with groups such as the M-19 guerrillas in Columbia and the Sandinistas.

Book News Annotation:

A former Cuban revolutionary reexamines his life and his disillusionment in the expansionist Cuban revolution that led him to flee to Spain after more than 15 years in Castro's service as spy, smuggler, drug trafficker, and counterfeiter of U.S. dollars. Masettis' autobiographical account takes readers inside the war room of the Cuban revolution, and sheds light on the workings of the Castro government.
