ITEM#: 12363056Havana:Flush with booming casinos, sex and drugs, Havana in 1953 is a lucrative paradise for everyone from the Mafia, Domino Sugar, and United Fruit to pimps, porn-makers, and anyone looking to grab a piece of the action - including the Cuban government, which naturally honors the interests of its old ally, Uncle Sam.Of course, where there's paradise, trouble can't be far behind. The Caribbean is fast becoming a strategic Cold War hub, and Soviet intelligence has taken Fidel Castro under its wing. The CIA's response is to send the one man capable of eliminating Castro: the legendary gunfighter and ex-Marine hero Earl Swagger. In Cuba, Earl finds himself up to his neck in treacherous ambiguity where the old rules about honor and duty don't apply, and where Earl's target seems to have more guts and good luck than anyone else in Cuba. The 47th Samurai:Bob Lee Swagger and Philip Yano are bound together by a single moment at Iwo Jima, 1945, when their fathers met in the bloody and chaotic battle for the island. Only Earl Swagger survived.More than sixty years later, Yano comes to America to honor the legacy of his heroic father by recovering the sword he used in the battle. His search has led him to Bob Lee, an ex-marine and Vietnam veteran, who immediately pledges himself to Yanos quest.Bob Lee finds the sword and delivers it to Yano in Tokyo. On inspection, they discover that it is not a standard WWII blade, but a legendary shin-shinto katana, an artifact of the nation. It is priceless but worth killing for. Suddenly Bob is at the center of a series of terrible crimes he barely understands but vows to avenge. And to do so, he throws himself into the world of the samurai, Tokyos dark, criminal yakuza underworld, and the unwritten rules of Japanese culture.
