Fidel and the Fleeg
FIDEL AND ?THE FLEEG? Fidel Castro was in his early twenties in 1948. Trixie Alvera (the sweet and beautiful Cuban girl who is now deceased) declined Tom's proposals two times because of her political desires and determination to help Cuba's poverty stricken population. Trixie's radiant beauty is captured by Angelica Favela who is a Spanish/Mexican/Belizian. Tom, now 78 years old, experienced an emotional flashback to 1948 when he discovered Angelica one night, a 21 year old living in Texas.Back Cover This is a true story of Tom Fleeger's adventure among the revolutionaries and privileged in pre-revolutionary Cuba. Tom's summer vacation from college put him among the rich society in Havana at a time when Fidel Castro was yet to become the island's dictator. Just twenty-two, 'The Fleeg' made what was to be a fatal error when he deceived the young revolutionary with the line he used to pick up women.Fidel discovered the deception and enraged, framed Fleeger for the murder of his rival. Barely escaping the mob, Fleeger fled Cuba only to return to save the woman he loved; beautiful Trixie Alvera, daughter of a rich casino owner. In a scene worthy of a thriller, Fleeger faces Fidel in his lair, and in a shootout, Trixie is wounded and Tom nearly killed by Fidel's pistol. Now, with Fidel and his henchmen on his tail, The Fleeg pleas with the gorgeous Cuban woman to many him and elope to the U.S. As the ferry pulls away, Tom must be on it if he is to see another dawn. Will trixie go with him? Or will she stay to assist her people to freedom? On her decision rests her future - - and The Fleeg's.
