About the Author

JC Perez is a Cuban-American writer, born in Caibarién, Cuba in 1955. His great-grandfather was a Cuban sugar baron, a Colono, who owned an immense sugar plantation in the middle of the island. Perez's parents fled Cuba in 1959 when Che Guevara's troops hit Santa Clara. A product of the Peter Pan flights organized by the Catholic Church to get children out of the revolutionary turmoil, Perez ultimately grew up in suburban New Jersey, as what could best be described as a normal, middle-class American child. However, Perez spent many weekends in the hills of New Jersey playing war games. These weren't the usual Boy Scout fare; they were sponsored by the CIA and were instrumental in what later became the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

Arriving in Miami in 1977, Perez was at the center of a regional boom that was controlled by the Cubans. He became a significant player and in the process of traveling in order to meet his business obligations, he became familiar with the entire breadth of the Caribbean scene, from the Bahamas to Cartagena, and all the major players involved. Some of these people were reggae singers, some were drug lords, others business men.

Perez knew when to call it quits. He moved to the west coast of Florida and settled on a farm, cultivating his own garden and, to everyone's surprise, he began to write.

Great adventure thriller about an incredible heist pulled off in Cuba. An adventure worth the read if you like gin clear waters, the florida scene and the Caribbean. Logan pulls off the impossible in cuba.

Format: Paperback
Fantastic for the first novel, Sr. Perez has set a high bar for his future adventures. I am certainly looking forward to it. A solid work balanced with enough history, adventure, and everyday reality to feel as if one step across that invisible line that we all dance upon and you'd be riding along with Kiki or laughing it up with Banco. If you've read Clive Cussler, add J.C. Perez to your library and make room on the shelf!
