Trick-or-Treat Mercenary: Family skeletons in a Cold War closet

 
9781494939403: Trick-or-Treat Mercenary: Family skeletons in a Cold War closet

It was a stormy Halloween night in 1960 when an American father of five disappeared on a plane that was bound for Cuba and loaded with three improvised bombs. Why would this ex-Navy pilot leave everything behind to join the Cuban revolution, giving up his American citizenship and risking his life on a mission for revenge against Fidel Castro? After years of secrets and silence about her father’s disappearance, his daughter Karen decided it was time for answers. Heavily censored government files, meetings with Cuban exiles in Miami, discovering an aunt who was a spy, an eye-opening solo journey to Havana, and a surprising revelation from the CIA are all part of the story of her odyssey to discover the truth about who her father really was and what really happened.

About the Author:

K.M. Hughes grew up in the shadow of her father, who Life Magazine described as a man-without-a-country, a rogue US Navy pilot, and a bomb-building terrorist out for revenge against Fidel Castro. Her graduate thesis at San Francisco State University was a short documentary film about his disappearance on Halloween night 1960, and her research into what happened has continued since. K.M.’s professional career began as a production artist in television and film, working with Colossal Pictures on early videos for MTV and the Grateful Dead, and doing design for Francis Coppola and Zoetrope Pictures. She later spent 10 years teaching art to elementary school students in northern California, where she lives with her family. Her feature article about the search for the truth about her father was published by the Miami Herald.
