Steele goes back to the Cuban Missile Crisis of the early 1960s, by way of the reminiscences of a man looking almost half a century back on his time as a crewmember on a Navy blimp monitoring Russian sea traffic around Cuba. There was someone else monitoring what’s happening, which is where the sfnal stuff comes in, and Steele wraps up the story nicely with another layer, in a nicely paced story that doesn’t try too hard.
