After slipping into the country on a small boat, Alex makes her way to Havana. Accompanying her is the attractive but dangerous Paul Guarneri, a Cuban-born exile who lives in the gray areas of the law. Together, they plunge into intrigue and danger in a climate of political repression and organized crime. Without the support of the United States, Alex must navigate Cuban police, saboteurs, pro-Castro security forces, and a formidable network of those loyal to the American underworld.

Noel Hynd has sold more than four million copies of his books throughout the world, including The Enemy Within and Flowers From Berlin. His most recent novel, Hostage in Havana, is the first book in the Cuban Trilogy starring Alexandria LaDuca. Hynd lives in Culver City, California.
Headed to Cuba on this covert mission for the CIA and as a favor for her friend, Alexandra remembers why she loves, and hates, being a secret agent. Before she even arrives onshore in Cuba, the Cuban Police are there to surprise her with gunfire. Just barely escaping, she walks for hours until finally finding a small shack where a family takes her in. Being separated from Guarneri, she later meets him at the designated hotel. They continue to run from the Cuban officials and from a paid assassin who has to kill them in order to save his own family. On this mission, Alex's faith grows as she learns to move on after the tragic murder of her fiance just a year and a half ago and rely on God's plan instead of her own (Psalm 118:8).
With a suspense-filled plotline and strong lead characters Noel Hynd's novel provides a good story, primarily for teens. Katie Schlemmer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

kay4 Stars Out Of 5goodAugust 11, 2011kayQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4there were a lot of characters to keep straight in the story but yet, their development made it easy to keep the groups separate as you read the story. At times phrasing was a little edgy ....more of a gentle read espionage than a Christian novel. IF you are looking for Scriptures quoted to edify the characters and the reader, it is prob not the book for you. You could tell the main character was being drawn back into fellowship with the Lord Jesus
