I found this riveting and nerve wracking dialogue covering the final fall of Batista, the disastrous failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion and the frantic attempts of the opposition to organize a credible counterrevolutionary force to be extremely timely in light of the current status of the Castro regime and with today's US/Cuba relationship. Viva Cuba Libre is a must read for all of us to refresh our memories of Castro's rise to power

This real life account of a CIA operative during the Cuban revolution is a fantastic read, true to life and an amazing account of what actually occurred. I simply couldn't put it down, it is a part of history! I can't wait to see the screenplay. I'll be looking for more books by Virginia Geddes.

There have been so many books, articles and plays written about Cuba, both past and present, that it´s difficult to find one with a fresh and fascinating point of view. The widow of a CIA agent in dangerous and tumultous revolutionary Cuba, Ms. Geddes has managed to write a gripping tale of courage, heroism, death and destruction which is grounded in the real life led by her late husband. This page-turner opens new vistas onto an era shrouded in secrecy.
