Today is the official release of Dale Dye's Havana File




When retired US Marine gunner Shake Davis learns an American with highly classified information has gone missing in Cuba, his investigation reveals the man is being held hostage on Fidel Castro’s private island

In the midst of a major move from suburban Virginia—“too close to the flagpole”—to the great state of Texas—“my kind of place and my kind of people”—retired US Marine gunner Shake Davis is contemplating the government’s proposed normalization of relations with Cuba—and he’s not happy about it. By the time he arrives at the new Davis homestead in a quaint little town south of the Texas capitol at Austin, he’s convinced—by instinct and past experience with tenacious communist governments—that America is making a big mistake in making nice with the Castro regime.

And Shake’s instinct may be right. When a missing American intelligence analyst goes missing in Cuba and is presumed dead, Shake flies into action, conducting his own investigation from Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. The drama reaches a head as Shake pulls together a small team of Marine Raiders to stage a daring rescue from the sea.
