Description

'Nelson DeMille is a true master'
Dan Brown

Strap in for the ride of a lifetime with the blistering new novel from America's greatest living thriller writer, Nelson DeMille.

Daniel 'Mac' MacCormick has a good life. Aged thirty-five and a decorated US Army veteran, he whiles away his life in stunning Key West, Florida, running a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat The Maine. A ladies' man and rule-breaker, Mac has it all - apart from the money to hold on to his beloved boat.

Then Mac is approached by a hotshot Miami lawyer called Carlos with an apparently irresistable offer: a fee of $2 million to run the boat into Havana and smuggle out $60 million from a stash hidden from the Castro government - cash once owned by the family of a beautiful Cuban-American woman named Sara Ortega.

With the political 'Cuban Thaw' underway, it's only a matter of time before someone finds the stash. But Mac knows if he accepts this job, he'll walk away rich...or not at all.

Punchy, witty and rammed with action, legendary international #1 bestseller Nelson DeMille once more shows he's a true master of the genre.

Review quote

DeMille delivers a knockout punch. * Book Reviews to Ponder (blog) * The opening of The Cuban Affair is dynamite - crisp, funny and dramatic - and the climactic conclusion is masterful action writing, fast, precise and genuinely gripping. * Newsday * Well worth the wait and then some. The sizzling plot and DeMille's strong new lead character drive the story onward at blazing speeds. A fun, exciting new thriller from one of the genre's most iconic authors. Thriller fans should run and not walk to pick this one up the second it hits bookstore shelves! * The Real Book Spy (blog) * A timely stay-up-all-night, nail-biting page-turner. * Library Journal * The thriller charts a satisfying course. A good day's work from an old pro. * Kirkus * A sensational theme, a new macho hero, and an adventurous setting - all account for DeMille's perfect concoction. * Times of India * The Cuban Affair offers romance, adventure and an astute and amusing look at today's Cuban communist police state. * Washington Times * A line from the novel perfectly describes this page-turner: "Sex, money, and adventure. Does it get any better than that?" * Publishers Weekly * Yank genius and decorated warrior DeMille pens yet another rollicking thriller. A top yarn. * Weekend Sport * The Cuban Affair feels authentic and real. * Washington Post * Provides white-knuckle tension mixed in with levity * Daily Mail *
