Things suddenly changed in 1989 when Masetti returned from a mission in Africa to find that Castro's secret police had arrested both Antonio and Patricio de la Guardia along with General Arnaldo Ochoa, Cuba's most famous and respected soldier -- all of whom were thought to be fomenting a Cuban perestroika. Masetti describes the Kafkaesque workings of the tribunal that resulted in the execution of his father-in-law and General Ochoa, and ultimately made him see the brutal reality of the revolutionary movement to which he had devoted half a lifetime. In the Pirate's Den offers a window onto the secret machinations of Castro's government as well as a compelling account of a crisis in revolutionary faith. This is a page-turning chronicle of a remarkable journey into and out of the Cuban revolution.
