This is a real life espionage story. The author of this biography was lucky to live very unruly times in his country of origin, Cuba, during the last 71 years. He was able to see the history of those years from a different point of view: from his fight as a revolutionary to becoming a master spy. As a young man he experience the passion of making a revolution, and as a mature man he felt the moral depression that cause him the realization that the deaths of his comrades were in vain. In the process he discovered new, beautiful and rich countries and became homesick for many years. He saw himself as a hero, loved and admired by his family and his fellow citizens at the beginning of his adult life, and now sees himself as an old man waiting for death as a loner and deserter of his youth's ideals. This is a real life story about a human being trapped sometimes by his own decisions and in other occasions by the ironies of destiny, a person fighting to survive, and at the same time loving and taking care of his family the best he could. This is a real life story about political deceive and human miseries; about how one can fool oneself in life regarding what is right or wrong. But it is also the confirmation that at times one can achieve a goal if one does try hard.
