Summary: A sexy, shoot-em-up telling of the CIA and FBI's attempts to take control of Castro's Cuba before and during the Kennedy administration, Pavia's colorful account reveals high-stakes bumbling and wishful thinking on the part of U.S. intelligence and diplomatic officials. The story features a bold cast of characters: Casino owners, washed up oddities like actor Errol Flynn, mob boss Santo Trafficante, and a covert band of ex-cons dubbed the "Doughnut Army" converge with countless agents trying to
keep a lid on the tinderbox of revolutionary Cuba and Cuban Miami. The book is based on extensive interviews with the American Cold Warriors who lived and breathed "The Cuba Project."
