More > relations. The fear of ‘another Cuba’ would haunt LBJ and framed his response to the Dominican crisis. LBJ’s task in Cuba was far from straight forward and his options vast, but at the same time consequence-laden. How did LBJ fundamentally frame the Cuban problem and how did this impinge upon his actions toward that small revolutionary state only 90 miles from Florida? What did he do, why and what does this tell us about the foreign policy of a much-maligned President? In this overview analysis Hughes outlines how LBJ was brilliant and fortunate, hesitant and decisive, attentive and passive, insightful and prone to muddled analogies. His actions were the epitome of his own disposition. This is the story of how LBJ neutered Fidel Castro.< Less

Haley, suicidal after Willi’s death, joins a CIA mission, then finds her alive in the hands of slavers. As both face death, his alter ego returns to kill her captors. Then past events intrude.... More > Valen, a Gnostic, forges a letter in Jesus’ name, then Cesare Borgia adapts it. Centuries later, the letter involves John McCone, J.

When a letter from George Durell surfaces, Haley and Willi again face violent foes, but this time they have help—serial killers Maxine Kordell and Mena Harling.< Less
