Book Review

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

When Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Raymond Peters was called to return to Cuba, he found himself embroiled in a plot to replace Fidel Castro and bring democracy back to the country. He is reunited with Sonia and discovers he has a son. He refused to desert them a second time. His plan was to bring them back to Miami with him. When Castro was murdered Dr. Peters was implicated. Was the murdered man really Castro?

Killing Castro has a well written plot. The suspense grabs the reader's attention from the beginning and holds it to the end. The characters are quite intriguing. The character of Dr. Peters is overshadowed by the sexy assassin Marcela. If you like a good mystery filled with espionage, you will enjoy this book.
