Riassunto: Computer icon, Frank Whitman, CEO of Whitman Technologies is a man grown accustomed to winning. He has become obsessed with capturing big fish, and views the world of big game fishing as just another arena of competition for the rich and famous.
Whitman desperately covets an invitation to the prestigious Hemingway Blue Marlin Tournament held in Cuba each year. But for all his billions, he lacks the connections to have an invite extended his way.
Whitman's investigations lead him to an old marlin fisherman, Capt. Louis Gladding, who grew up in Cuba, and who has personally fished with the Premier himself. He traces the old Captain to a small Florida town, and sends his personal aid, Scott Byrd, to lure Louis away from his charterboat and procur his services for the big event. Whitman is fully aware of the huge computer markets laying dormant throughout the caribbean, which will open when the Cuban power structure undergoes future change.
Although Byrd is in the employ of Frank Whitman, he has been planted as a spy to undermine, and eventually betray, all the efforts of Whitman and his new crew.
Tragic consequences ensue, climaxing with an intense hunt and capture of mighty blue marlin.
L'autore: Capt. Charley Bartholomay. a former syndicated outdoor columnist for Scripps-Howard Publications, brings his considerable authority of twenty five years as a professional tournament fishing captain to his compelling sea story, blending big game fishing and island life with corporate intrigue.
