Американское правительство закрывало глаза на Батисту и его режим, потомучто он был ярым анти-коммунистом, а во времена холодной войны это было очень актуально. Мафиози любили Батисту, потомучто вместе с ним они фактически поделили между собой остров.

Автор пишет подробно, но не академично, при этом не показывая явных симпатий какой-либо из сторон. Книга читается очень живо и интересно (прямо как криминальный роман), а ее колоритные герои так и просятся на экран.
