It's September 1888, and Commander Peter Wake, Office of Naval Intelligence, has five days to rescue his two captured operatives from a dungeon in Spanish colonial Havana. But his plan quickly falls apart on the first day when long-time nemesis Colonel Isidro Marrón, head of Spanish counter-intelligence, springs a deadly trap that Wake can't avoid. Huguenots, Freemasons, the beautiful actress Sarah Bernhardt, the re-election of President Grover Cleveland, and Cuban patriot José Martí are all part of the action.
