It's New Year's Eve 1958, and Fidel Castro has mobilized his forces for the long-awaited overthrow of the Cuban government, precipitating a chain of events that will alter an eight-year-old boy's life forever. Being the son of one of the richest men in Cuba, young Miguel Fuentes has lived a life of unrivaled luxury. Shortly after midnight, his ideal world is shattered and he is eventually taken off the island to the perceived safety of the United States. Twenty years later, the young boy resurfaces as a deadly assassin for hire, known only as "El Niño," whose mercenary services are doled out to the highest bidder. Lance Almond, a loner, is a deep-cover CIA agent who prefers to work solo, and has "eliminated" more targets than he cares to remember. When recruited for his next assignment by the director himself, he suddenly realizes that it will be one of the deadliest challenges of his career. Not only that, he is informed that he will not be doing the job alone. Kate Beckett is an up-and-coming star in the New York field office of the FBI, determined to break the glass ceiling imposed on her by a male-dominated law enforcement agency. She doesn't care who she has to work with, as long as she gets promoted to a field office of her own. Or does she? Find out if the two agents will be able to work together to foil one of the most sinister assassination plots ever conceived in this fast-paced storyline filled with intriguing plot twists that keeps the reader guessing to the very end.

"A moving testament, his narrative provides an insider's look at the Castro regime's personality cult, its indoctrination of children and surveillance of ordinary Cubans. " - Publishers Weekly In December 1992 Orestes Lorenzo undertook the most daring journey of his life. More than a year earlier, while a major in the Cuban Air Force, he had escaped from Cuba by flying a MiG to the United States, and for twenty-one frantic months had been trying to get permission for his wife, Vicky, and their two sons to join him. When all his attempts to gain their freedom failed, Orestes decided to go back and rescue his family himself. Meanwhile, Vicky had been undergoing a terrifying ordeal back in Cuba, where the authorities were pressuring her to denounce her husband as a traitor. They informed her that she would never be allowed to leave, and that Raul Castro himself had declared: "If Lorenzo had the guts to leave with one of my MiGs, maybe he has the guts to come back and get his family." Desperate, Orestes Lorenzo did just that, flying an old twin-engine Cessna across the straits of Florida, avoiding Cuban radar, and landing on a busy highway in a breathtaking rescue. Wings of Morning is Lorenzo's account of this astonishing feat, but it is also the unforgettable odyssey of a young man growing up during the euphoria of the Cuban Revolution, marrying his sweetheart, and going off to train as a fighter pilot in the Soviet Union. Lorenzo movingly describes his growing disillusionment with communism, his religious awakening amidst the revelations of Perestroika, and the near-death of his beloved Vicky, as well as his increasing conviction that he must not let his children grow up in a country that denies any dignity or spiritual values in the individual, in the family, and to society.

Andrew Coburn’s The Babysitter was a bestseller; his previous book, Off Duty, was hailed by the New York Times Book Review as “a flawlessly plotted, stylishly written account The rewards are many and exceptional.” Now, in Sweetheart, a novel about the Boston Mafia, Andrew Coburn has surpassed himself. Revenge, the defining motif of this suspenseful tale of crime, is a joyous emotion in the Mafia. It figures in their use of tire irons to dismember the killers of the innocent, honored parents of Anthony Gardella, the local capo. And, over cocktails, a more sophisticated vengeance can be sought—by using a Beretta semi-automatic with silencer fired at point blank range. Police Lieutenant Wade, code name “Sweetheart”, has troubles of his own. Wade is recruited by Russell Thurston, and FBI agent of immaculate grooming and soaring ambition, to infiltrate the Gardella family. As shock follows surprise, Wade finds himself caught in a dilemma: The police lieutenant’s sympathies are subtly drawn toward the all-too-fascinating charm of the mobster chief, until Wade, the honest cop, must make an agonizing choice. The man who always did what was right has to decide whether to cross the slim line between justice and corruption. Andrew Coburn’s ear for dialogue and his eye for vivid characterization make Sweetheart superior and original entertainment as well as a grippingly authentic Mafia story.
