Teaser Tuesday (January 26th)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here is my teaser:

"As soon as it came to a halt, our plane was immediately surrounded by twenty or so soldiers who mounted guard, rifles slung over their shoulders.  We were watching this spectacle from the windows of the plane when Fidel suddenly decided to disembark to enjoy an Irish coffee in the transit zone.  It was sheer bravado; for the Comandante, it was a way of saying that nothing could stop him from making an incursion into enemy territory --- on this occasion, that of Ireland, next door to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, an indefatigable ally of Ronald Reagan."
-The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to el Líder Máximo
by Juan Reinaldo Sánchez with Axel Glydén (p. 130-131)

Have you ever read this book?  What did you think?
