HAVANA PASSAGE


The first book of the Washington Trilogy

The Nation’s first woman President is an iconoclast. Well down the list of her foreign policy initiatives is the diplomatic conversion of Cuba from a peace-threatening cancer to a useful hemispheric partner. Considered enlightened to those who agree, and a political anathema to those who don’t, her Cuban agenda becomes accelerated by two events.

An American fishing boat is boarded by the U.S. Coast Guard coming out of Havana Harbor, and

Kate Stevens, a law student at Georgetown University, produces a documentary film questioning the constitutionality of the fifty-year-old Cuban trade embargo.

The President gathers strength from two men who fought alongside each other to secure her place in history – Charles Black, her Chief of Staff, and Gordon Cox, a Washington lawyer. While Cox helps Black and the President move the controversial Cuban policy forward, Gordon and his firm’s new associate, Kate Stevens, prepare to defend the fishing boat captain in court, and are sent to Havana with that case as cover on a secret mission for the President.

In this politically current and action packed work we are given a peek into the workings of a lawyer whose client is the sitting United States President and a Cuba without Fidel Castro.

GITMO

Guantanimo Bay

The third book of the Washington Trilogy brings the nations of the hemisphere together to do what none could manage alone. We are introduced to a brilliant young woman, Naval Academy graduate, born in Cuba and married to an officer in the U.S. Department of State, and a fan of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. She leads the President's parade, and old friends, Kate and Gordon, through life threatening challenges in and out of Havana and Foggy Bottom.

 

The author – Jay Lillie – an international lawyer, writer, and blue water sailor, entertains with a work of fiction drawn from tomorrow's history.

Enjoy the read, and then watch it happen.

PACIFIC REBOUND

Many of the islands of the southwestern Pacific, north of Australia, were occupied by Japan or came under the Japanese sphere of influence from the late 1930s through the end of World War II.

About halfway on a straight line south from Tokyo to Darwin, Australia lies the Island of Yap. Like its neighbours close to the east, Yap is one of the pinpoint peaks of an under-sea volcanic mountain range several thousand feet taller than Himalayas' Mount Everest. The shoreline of Yap rises over 35,000 feet from the depths of the nearby Challenger Deep.

We don't know much about what's down there, but it would be a good place to hide something that you never want found.

This story begins halfway around the globe in midtown Manhattan. The time is now and the people, as well as what they see and do, exist only in your imagination.

Compelling international adventure... intriguing, challenging.
