Inside Fidel Castro's government a conspiracy is brewing, when along comes Neal McGrath. He is not a spy. He's a university professor visiting Havana to research a book during the time when Fidel Castro is at the height of his power. Before McGrath leaves the States, though, an old colleague from the CIA pressures him for a favor—get in touch with Elena Rodriguez, a beautiful and mysterious woman from McGrath’s past. But one meeting with Elena is enough to trap Neal in a life-and-death game of international conspiracy. Elena now works for Cuba's top-secret intelligence agency, the Ministry of Interior, and the information she possesses can sway governments--or get her killed. Neal offers to help her any way he can, all the while struggling to make sense of events that draw him and Elena ever deeper into Cuba's cutthroat world of power and lies, where only one rule is clear: Survive any way you can. 

“Patriot Trap, based on real life events that took place in Cuba during a period of Fidel Castro’s tight control, is a must read. For those looking for a better understanding of evolving U.S.-Cuban tensions, this highly charged action-adventure is just the ticket. I strongly recommend it.”
