Summary

Havana, 1958: the perfect kidnapping. . . . until no one will pay the ransom.
 
Ariana Rojas is alluring, intelligent, sophisticated, and wealthy – at least until a brutal dictator steals the family fortune. Determined to get back what she lost; she joins the revolution. It isn’t long before she hatches a clever scheme, the perfect crime, to recover what she once had while getting revenge at the same time. She arranges the kidnapping of Jimmy Foster, a wealthy American who spends weekends in Havana with his gorgeous wife Darlene.
 
Even with meticulous planning, Ariana makes one crucial mistake. She never dreams that Darlene Foster won’t pay the ransom. But with a missing husband and a huge inheritance, Darlene has options she likes a whole lot more.
 
The Drop has a unique cast of characters: a Mafia casino manager, an unbearable wife, a mysterious detective, and revolutionaries in name only. Ariana manipulates all involved to affect an outcome few can predict, none can imagine, and all will enjoy.
