When a faceless guerrilla fighter aligned with the resistance to overthrow Castro is pitted against a clever and deceptive Soviet agent, the result is a piece of historical fiction that masterfully blends fact with the exciting story of Eduardo Xiques, better known as Atcho. Exceptionally resourceful, well-trained, capable—Atcho is fully equipped to take on the mission assigned to him, that is until the safety of Isabel, his two year old daughter, is threatened by Govorov, the Soviet agent who will stop at nothing to gain information pertaining to Atcho's identity and whereabouts. Now that Isabel has been kidnapped, Atcho must navigate the treacherous trail leading to her rescue. But in order to save her and fulfill his assignment, he must use all of his specialized training in the process.
Curse the Moon: Atcho Rises is the latest suspenseful novel from author Lee Jackson. This is historical fiction at its finest, thrilling and engaging as it takes the reader along Atcho's journey into the tumultuous world of tenuous national alliances, military reconnaissance, and the struggle for political power. Jackson does a wonderful job of creating a real, multi-dimensional, and dynamic character in the form of Atcho, and his skill with weaving history into the framework of his stories is always evident.
This is a great reading selection for historical fiction fanatics, especially those with a particular interest in Castro-era Cuba (think Bay of Pigs specifically) and the oft-strained relationship between the US and the Soviet Union. Curse the Moon: Atcho Rises has what you are looking for and comes highly recommended. Find it now in bookstores everywhere.
