When Fidel Castro came to power in 1959 Cuba supplied the U.S. with one third of its sugar. Castro quickly alienated President Dwight D. Eisenhower by illegally expropriating the property owned by U.S. citizens and corporations. The Cuban economy quickly began to collapse and thousands of Cuban citizens, stripped of their property rights and their personal dignity, began to seek refuge in America. One family had a plan to finance their new life in America with a nest egg derived from their illicit sales of cigarettes and liquor, which commanded a high price in Havana’s burgeoning black market. Time begins to work against them when Eisenhower invokes an embargo on the import of Cuban sugar. Then, a new opportunity presented itself - a daring and bizarre robbery of the sugar refinery payroll in the Queens Plaza subway station. The perpetrators made their escape leaving their naked victim bound and gagged in the station men’s room. The author of this historically accurate novel provides us with a new twist in a fast paced, penetrating, and humorous reconstruction of this unsolved and widely reported crime, the times, and the characters involved in the gritty Queens neighborhoods where it all took place.
