Cuba Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Cuba

Cuba is a suspenseful novel that takes place primarily on the last communist Island and the US warships circling the island. The US searches for a US cargo ship that sailed from Gitmo carrying biological warheads when it is lost at sea and presumably has fallen into Cuban hands. The small island is packed with a new brand of revolutionaries willing to lob a biological warhead into America's prominent cities.

The review of this Book prepared by Jerry Naradzay

Castro is sick and dying, a villianous politician seizes power and wants to attack the U.S. using Chemical Warfare. Jake Grafton (Hero) is in the area and takes matters into his own to save the day.

While I enjoy reading Stephen Coonts' books, I found this one to be lacking the style that captured me found in his (Coonts) first 2 books ... "Flight of the Intruder & Final Flight."

However (for me) it was an enjoyable book to read.
