Hope For Valhalla by Mike Whicker


It is 1946, the American Mafia is successfully setting up shop in Cuba. The newly formed CIA is concerned that the American gangsters are developing close ties with the Soviets, who are slowly increasing their presence on the island. The CIA calls upon two of its agents, Erika Lehmann and Zhanna Rogova. The women are sent to Havana to infiltrate the mob and gather intelligence. The two women successfully insert themselves into the mob’s inner circle, becoming bodyguards for Bugsy Siegel. Things run smoothly for a time, but that was not to last after the Soviets send their top assassin to Cuba.
