René Ruiz does a splendid job narrating this fascinating history. Listeners will be engaged by this detailed work about the spy ring of 14 men and women, known as the Wasp Network, who were sent by Cuban intelligence to infiltrate anti-Castro groups in Florida in the 1990s. The ring was eventually found out, and several of its members sentenced to long prison sentences. The author is quite sympathetic to the members of this ring, but he does go into detail on the wide range of opinions in the Cuban exile community and the sometimes deadly interactions of the two sides. Ruiz's voice is clear, and his pacing is brisk but not too quick. His inflection and expression are quite appropriate to the text, and his pronunciation of Spanish names is outstanding.
