Books Info:

Ninety Seven Miles South free pdf Christina ransoms her American lover's freedom with the only things she owns, her beauty and her body. Now, it's up to Pete to repay that debt. Risking both their lives in a midnight, open ocean dash, he must reach dry land if the Cuban woman he loves is to survive. High seas adventure and an improbable love engulfs a crew of resourceful American anglers who dare to cross the Straits of Florida, to the forbidden fruit of the Caribbean...Cuba. Pursuit of giant Blue Marlin, in waters made famous by Hemingway is not without hazards, as is navigating thru the socialist society of the western hemisphere's only communist government. Spies, informants, a powerful secret police colonel combine to assure the visiting Americans spend their dollars without spreading the taboo dogmas of capitalism, democracy and most threatening of all speech. Classic cars, centuries old cities and breathtaking mountain vistas - off limits to most Americans - masks the struggle the average Cuban faces to feed his family. Morality battles necessity for a people living on the most fertile of all Caribbean lands where a three meal day is rare, the black market, a risky requirement. One American's pursuit of love proves more perilous than monster fish.
