We’re happy to announce we’ll be publishing three of Lawrence Block’s classic early novels as signed limited editions. The trio was out of print for decades, until being resurrected by Hard Case Crime. 

About the Book:

BECAUSE IN 1961, NO ONE WOULD HAVE CALLED FIDEL CASTRO THE RETIRING TYPE

There were five of them, each prepared to kill, each with his own reasons for accepting what might well be a suicide mission. The pay? $20,000 apiece. The mission? Find a way into Cuba and kill Castro.

This breathtaking thriller, originally published the year before the Cuban Missile Crisis under a pen name Lawrence Block never used before or since, is the rarest of Block’s books—and still a work of chilling relevance all these years later, with Castro and Cuba once again commanding headlines.

Limited: 500 signed numbered hardcover copies

 

From Booklist:

“Hard Case Crime continues to resurrect early work by genre stalwart Lawrence Block [and] this one may be the most interesting find of all...plenty of blood and bullets and, as always with Block, a fine feel for character.”

 

From Publishers Weekly:

“Absorbing...[an] intense, taut thriller.”
