Short Synopsis
A gripping thriller set at the height of the Cold War that masterfully connects the dots between the Kennedys, Castro, the mob, and the CIA, from E. Duke Vincent, author of Mafia Summer.

Full Synopsis
It's 1960, the height of the Cold War, but for Dante Amato of the Chicago mob, life is anything but cold. Charismatic and movie-star handsome, Dante has settled comfortably into his role as the Outfit's man in Hollywood and Vegas. Dante's older brother, Aldo, a CIA agent, couldn't be more disapproving of his brother's life. Yet when Dante is ordered to meet with a beautiful Cuban go-between named Marissa del Valle, and then mob boss Sam Giancana summons him to Miami to discuss a U.S. Government commission to hit the Cuban dictator, Dante's first call is to his brother.

Is it a set-up? Or a chance for the mob to restart the flow of gambling and drug money from Havana? And what about Bobby Kennedy's war against the mob? "Bobby Kennedy is a snake," says Jimmy Hoffa to Santo Trafficante. "And how do you kill a snake? You cut off its head." As this spellbinding thriller by E. Duke Vincent unfolds, a gripping story emerges, masterfully connecting the dots between the Kennedys, Castro, the mob, the CIA...and the Grassy Knoll.

"Vincent does an excellent job of seamlessly blending fact and fiction. Not just for JFK-assassination devotees, the well-constructed story should please readers of historical fiction." ---Booklist

"Boehmer gives a heroic reading to Vincent's potboiler.…Rip-roaring stuff." ---Booklist Audio Review

"Thrillers thrive on a conspiracy burning away like a fuse on a bomb. With this novel, Vincent strikes a fictional match and explodes the supposed cover-ups, machinations and disinformation surrounding the Kennedy assassination." ---Kirkus
