Summary
Born in Germany during the outbreak of WWII, Marita was incarcerated in a Nzai concentration camp as a child. In 1959 she travelled to Cuba, where she met and fell in love with Fidel Castro. Yet, upon fleeing to America, she was recruited by the CIA to assassinate him. Torn by love and loyalty, she failed to slip Fidel the lethal pills. Caught up in Cold War intrigue and espionage, even testifying as a witness to the JFK assassination conspiracy, this is Marita's incredible true story of a young girl turned spy
Summary
A woman who became the mistress of Fidel Castro describes her affair with the Cuban dictator and her career as a reluctant CIA agent
