From the Publisher
Uncertain Paradise: 1973 [Part One] is a politico-military thriller and the seventh novel penned by John W. Cassell, an up and coming writer that Jack Engelhard, author of the world famous best-selling novel and later smash box office hit movie Indecent Proposal describes as "talent fulfilled".
From a nerve cracking nuclear standoff at the beginning, through months of hit and run guerilla warfare, this story of love, war and intrigue will keep you on the edge of your seat.
From the Author
The original idea for Uncertain Paradise: 1973 was expressed by me some thirty years ago following discharge from the Air Force in an unpublished short story I wrote entitled "The Flower of St. Margaret's".
The tale told in this book was leavened in the intervening years by my quarter-century career as a criminal prosecutor and ten years' residence on a remote tropical island.
The wall to wall action you will find in the story reflects the major currents of the year 1973, everything from the revolutions exported by Castro's Cuba, CIA intervention in developing nations, Soviet nuclear sabre-rattling, the restless agitation for independence in the Third World and the Watergate scandal back in America all find expression within its pages.
