In the early years of the Cuban revolution, CIA operatives, mobsters, and Cuban exiles plotted-sometimes collaborating, sometimes contending-to kill Fidel Castro. How could they all have failed? How could Castro elude so many attempts on his life by trained killers? The Nine Lives of Fidel Castro is a compelling tale of intrigue, defiance, and revenge. Drawing on his meticulous research in US and Cuban intelligence sources, historian/novelist David Dasarath Davidson imaginatively fills in blanks in the historical record to show how Fidel consolidated power in the face of relentless American opposition. We see an intimate portrait of a young, idealistic, and power-hungry Fidel Castro, the Kennedys' obsessive secret crusade to kill him, astonishing CIA/Mafia collusion to that end, and how plots intended to "eliminate" Castro rebounded tragically in the death of JFK. Key events of the early 60s come alive through tragicomic interplays of invented and actual players-including Castro's women, Meyer Lansky, Santo Trafficante, intelligence operatives, John and Robert Kennedy, and a stand-up comedian based on Lenny Bruce-whose hip, insightful, and funny monologues reveal hypocrisies and tensions of the time, and suggest a new way of resolving the age-old battle of good vs. evil that still drives hatred, violence, and conflict in the world today.
