From the legendary #1 New York Times bestselling author of Plum Island and Night Fall comes this action-packed, relentlessly paced thriller (Publishers Weekly, starred review) featuring US Army combat veteran Daniel Mac MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise. Daniel Mac Graham MacCormick seems to have a pretty good life. At age thirty-five he's living in Key West, owner of a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat The Maine. But after serving five years in the Army and purchasing a boat with a big bank loan, Mac's finances are more than a little shaky.

One day, Mac is sitting in the famous Green Parrot Bar, contemplating his life, and waiting for Carlos, a hotshot Miami lawyer heavily involved with anti-Castro groups. Carlos wants to hire Mac and The Maine for a ten-day fishing tournament to Cuba at the standard rate, but Mac suspects there is more to this and turns it down. The price then goes up to two million dollars, and Mac agrees to hear the deal, and meet Carlos's clients--a beautiful Cuban-American woman named Sara Ortega, and a mysterious older Cuban exile, Eduardo Valazquez.

What Mac learns is that there is sixty million American dollars hidden in Cuba by Sara's grandfather when he fled Castro's revolution. With the Cuban Thaw underway between Havana and Washington, Carlos, Eduardo, and Sara know it's only a matter of time before someone finds the stash--by accident or on purpose. And Mac knows if he accepts this job, he'll walk away rich...or not at all.

PRAISE FOR THE CUBAN AFFAIR BY NELSON DEMILLE: [An] action-packed, relentlessly paced thriller... A line from the novel perfectly describes this page-turner: 'Sex, money, and adventure. Does it get any better than that?' --Publishers Weekly (starred review) DeMille's latest is a timely stay-up-all-night, nail-biting page-turner featuring his iconic tongue-in-cheek, articulate, rhythmic narrative. His affably irreverent protagonist, fantastic believable supporting characters, and tense, realistic Cuba-set scenes including some jaw-dropping revelations make this a must-read for his many fans. --Library Journal (starred review) The thriller charts a satisfying course. A good day's work from an old pro. --Kirkus Reviews This is powerful, mythic stuff, like Confederate gold and Nazi treasure...As the true nature of the charter-boat owner's job becomes clear and the betrayals begin, DeMille mounts a long, magnificent sequence with boat chases, helicopter rescues, and tracer fire. They're all described in that visceral style the author has mastered. --Booklist This book has that incredible wit that Nelson DeMille has, and nobody writes characters like Nelson does. --Tampa Bay Times Nelson DeMille has outdone himself. I thought that Plum Island was one of my favorite thrillers of all time, but I was wrong--DeMille is always going up a gear and The Cuban Affair is going to be one of the top ten thrillers of the year. --Strand Magazine
