The time line is 1989-1992, a period when hundreds of millions in U.S. sourced dollars flooded the British administered colony causing real estate values to skyrocket from $50,000 for two acres on Grace Bay (1980) to numbers approaching $50,000 per-running-front-foot on the same beach (late 90s). Coincidentally, huge sums of money transferred to the colonys offshore banks quickly grew under the lenient do not ask - do not tell banking system. This story is pure fiction- the characters are equally-pure TCI - native and ex-pat. The story is exceptionally rich in intrigue, state-of-the-art (1990) technology, and a cast of characters ranging from the poorest, least-educated native black to Fidel Castro and British Ministers of Government. Move over Herman Wouk (Dont Stop the Carnival- 1965)- this is your 40+ year update!
