Few people can say they've 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 WWII, Marita was incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp as a child. In 1959, she travelled 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 the Fidel. 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 P#65533;rez Jim#65533;nez; testifying about the John F. Kennedy assassination; and becoming a party girl with close ties the New York mafia (and then 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.
