Item description for Fidel and the Fleeg by Tom Fleeger...
FIDEL AND ?THE FLEEG?
This is the true story of Tom Fleeger?s adventure among the revolutionaries and privileged in pre-revolutionary Cuba. Tom?s summer vacation from college put him among the rich society in Havana at a time when Fidel Castro was yet to become the island?s dictator. Just twenty-two, ?The Fleeg? made what was to be a fatal error when he deceived the young revolutionary with the line he used to pick up women.
Fidel discovered the deception and enraged, framed Fleeger for the murder of his rival. Barely escaping the mob, Fleeger fled Cuba only to return to save the woman he loved; beautiful Trixie Alvera, daughter of a casino owner. In a scene worthy of a thriller, Fleeger faces Fidel in his lair, and in a shootout, Trixie is wounded and Tom nearly killed by Fidel?s pistol.
Now, with Fidel and his henchmen on his tail, The Fleeg pleas with the gorgeous Cuban woman to marry him and elope to the US. As the ferry pulls away, Tom must be on it if he is to see another dawn. Will Trixie go with him? Or will she stay to assist her people to freedom? On her decision rests her future---and The Fleeg?s.

ACTION PACKED TRUE STORY---A MUST READ Mar 23, 2004
I found this to be a riveting story full of drama, action and surprises. It documents the adventures of Tom Fleeger in the Summer of 1948 during his interaction with the Cuban revolutionary groups as they struggled to overthrow the Baptista Government. It is a smoothly flowing fast-paced action packed story interlaced with romantic interludes. The reader will be tempted to read the book completely through as I did without putting it down. This high drama story along with its high profile charcters make it a perfect vehicle for either a theater or a TV movie.
