‘Polnoch ‘ By Luke Timmins

In the dying days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a young man and a trio of CIA agents must infiltrate Cuba to try and stop a covert Soviet attempt to escalate the crises. When the team discover a traitor amongst them, they try to complete their mission against impossible odds.

Ruben Kane is a young man raised on the Cuban foothills of the Sierra Maestra Mountains by his Irish father, an ex-IRA volunteer and, unknown to Kane, a CIA asset who has spent years training him in all forms of combat and self-defence. When his father disappears, it falls on Kane to utilise his skills for the first time and discover the truth. In doing so he navigates a dangerous world of spies, revolutionaries and traitors in the soupy heat of Havana and Miami, before eventually questioning whose side he’s really on.

Meanwhile a brilliant but disgraced Soviet naval captain, Abram Shevchenko, is heading west. Slipping through the blockade, he sails to Cuba stocked with a ship full of tactical nuclear weapons.

With his father’s CIA handlers by his side, Kane sets out to stop Shevchenko before it’s too late.
