Things have grown more precarious for young spy Julio Antonio del Marmol.

Produktbeschreibung
Things have grown more precarious for young spy Julio Antonio del Marmol. Despite his continued stream of intelligence relating to the subject, US intelligence refuses to believe that the Cubans are capable of putting together the vast resources and monies required to assassinate John F. Kennedy, the sitting President of the United States. The frustration is compounded by the fact it took them a year to seriously take the photos he had transmitted of nuclear missiles from the Soviet Union before sending a U-2 flight over the island to verify their existence. Now he is selected to deliver a map to Lee Harvey Oswald that will mislead American forces in the coming invasion of Cuba. Che takes Julio Antonio to the Tropicana, where he meets three of Che's "Amazons," dancers who are also trained assassins in his service. There he meets not only Che's KGB handler from the Soviet Union, but shortly after the Russian leave he watches as Che meets with a delegation from the Chinese Communist Party. Even though Che is an agent for the KGB, it is clear that he is playing both sides of the communist fence, and to send Guevara a message that he's being watched, the entire Chinese delegation are assassinated as they leave by the Russians. The map turns out to be another test of Julio Antonio's loyalty, as the man he meets is yet another double of Lee Harvey Oswald. He is arrested by Piñeiro's agents, and brought before a meeting with Che, Fidel, Piñeiro, and one of the other Commanders, in which he not only explains his reasons for not delivering the map, but returns it and shows Che and Fidel exactly what the head of the G-2 has really been doing to him. He begins a relationship with his associate, Chandee, and goes on a "vacation" to better know the leader of the "Amazons," Tanya and her niece, Che's illegitimate daughter, better.
Autorenporträt
Dr. Julio Antonio del Marmol is the son of the primary financier behind Fidel Castro's revolution, Leonardo del Marmol. A Grand Master Mason, Leonardo organized his Masonic brothers to provide the funds Castro needed to purchase supplies and weapons. When the revolution won in January, 1959, then-11-year-old Julio Antonio wanted to become part of the revolution. His father arranged to get a letter written by his son detailing a plan to organize the Cuban youth into an army of the future into the hands of Fidel Castro, who flew out to meet the young man. Impressed by the boy's eloquence, he presented Julio Antonio with his own .38 pistol as a give and appointed him Commander-in-Chief of the Young Commandos of the Rebel Army and the youngest military commander in the revolution. Within six months, Che Guevara showed the youth that the plan was to implement a communist system on the island. In distress, he went to warn his father, who accused Julio Antonio of being brainwashed by an uncle in Havana (who never liked the revolution) and threw his own 12 year old son out of the house. Julio Antonio went to his uncle and revealed everything he had seen, only to discover that his uncle was a master spy going back to World War II, in which he was in charge of the network preventing the Nazis from taking control of the Caribbean and Central/South America. His uncle recruits and trains Julio Antonio, making him the youngest spy in history. He continues in his role, taking secrets from Castro's own office until his cover is blown in 1971. He must leave the island for the US, taking his fight against communism to a global level.
