The Navigator III by Steve Coleman
Release Date: December 1, 2021
About the Book:
Sometime CIA agent and former naval officer, Joe Anderson, is tasked to confiscate (steal back) an NSA-equipped spy ship from Havana, Cuba. Joe’s engineer and the smuggler who brought them to Cuba are arrested, which dangerously compromises Joe’s mission. His significant other, Mary, angry at him for accepting another CIA mission, goes to Cuba as a tourist with her zany friend, Frances; and the pair accidentally fall into trouble in Havana. Joe then not only has to repossess the ship, he also must rescue the women before the police find them. The dangerously impossible adventure becomes both dire and humorous. This is the third novel in THE NAVIGATOR series.
