9781448954704: Babylon Burning: A Novel of Jamaica in the Cold War Years

The United States, seeking to prevent another Caribbean island from following Cuba into the Soviet camp, is undermining Jamaica's socialist government with a bloody campaign of violence, led by a Jamaican-born U.S. military veteran. The economy is collapsing and the inept leaders of the opposition party can do nothing. Enter London-based businessman, Bennett Meyers, and his associates on the island, who use marijuana smuggling to finance their ambitious plans to change the economy and bring hope and prosperity to the island. But a drug deal gone bad puts a vengeful cop on Bennett's trail and threatens the entire plan. The CIA, impressed by Bennett's plans and his capitalist ethic, rides to the rescue, and offers him the leadership of the island. But at what price?
