Summary (From the publisher):

High-stake decisions are all in a day's work for Christian Gillette, chairman of New York's most renowned private equity firm. But now Gillette is offered the chance to seal a deal unlike any other. The leader of Cuba is dead, and the United States is poised to support a cabal of Cuban professionals plotting a coup. U.S. president Jesse Wood wants Gillette to meet with the conspirators and size up the chances for a successful capitalist revolution. But by no means can Gillette's mission be traced back to the White House. If anything goes wrong, Gillette is on his own. What he doesn't realize is that enemies in high places have set in motion a campaign of deception, sabotage, and murder whose shock waves will resonate from Havana to Washington, D.C. But for Gillette, the greatest peril lies much closer to home.
