Razzle Dazzleby MR Tim J. Underwood
Even as the new U.S. President John F. Kennedy approved the doomed Bay of Pigs Invasion Plan, the Castro government knew most of the details
Imagine yourself, a trained sharpshooter, in Cuba on April 14, 1961. The Bay of Pigs Invasion is set to begin. By a quirk of fate, you have Fidel Castro in your rifle sights and an opportunity to change the course of history.
Even as the new U.S. President John F. Kennedy approved the doomed Bay of Pigs Invasion Plan, the Castro government knew most of the details with plenty of time to prepare defenses. A key element in this ill-fated plan is the assassination of the Castro brothers and Che Guevara. The Mafia is enlisted by the CIA to carry out this action. The central character of Razzle-Dazzle, an American gambler and one-time intelligence operative, Jake St. Aubin, is the best of the assassins assembled by organized crime. By accident of fate, Jake finds with himself with Fidel in his gun sights. He has plenty of incentive to pull the trigger having lost his Havana nightclub and his fortune when Castro ousted Batista. Betrayed, he spent nearly a year in a Cuban prison camp. Now he can exact revenge and even ensure the outcome of the invasion. Yet, by pulling the trigger, he risks losing everything he loves.
Set in a fascinating period of political, technological, and social change, historical figures - some famous and some yet to be famous - play significant roles. Razzle-Dazzle puts its principal characters through peril and passion. Old hatreds are rekindled, new loves found, and indomitable adversaries overcome.
One man caught up in America's first great intelligence failure, Jake has only his unique skills, speed, courage... and love to see him through.
