Description

Here is the dramatic, glamorous story of lover-turned-spy Marita Lorenz and her affair with Fidel Castro, the basis for a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence. Few people can say they have seen some of the most significant moments of the twentieth century unravel before their eyes. Marita Lorenz is one of them. Born in Germany at the outbreak of World War II, Marita was incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp as a child. In 1959, she traveled 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 Castro. Torn by love and loyalty, she couldn't bring herself to slip him the lethal pills. Her life would take many more twists and turns, including having a child with ex-dictator of Venezuela Marcos Perez Jimenez, testifying about the John F. Kennedy assassination, becoming a party girl with close ties to the New York mafia, and then becoming a police informant. Caught up in Cold War intrigue, espionage, and conspiracy, this is Marita's incredible autobiography of a young woman who became a spy for the CIA.
