Journalist Peter Dees lives where most people die: in war zones and killing fields from Africa to Panama, Bosnia to the Middle East. Now Dees is about to walk into a firefight one short boat ride from Key West.
In Cuba, Fidel is dying. The natives are restless. And a ruthlessly powerful man has kicked off a dirty little war on both sides of the Gulf Stream. With a good friend dead, a fierce Cuban beauty at his side, and hot links reaching to every corner of the world's information superhighway, Dees is running wired through a minefield of fanatics, spies, and killers. What's at stake is the ultimate live shot: of a nuclear device--exploding in America's backyard. . . .
