Retired baseball star Cano Vega is murdered on a Spanish Harlem community baseball field he sponsored, with his skull smashed with a bat. He had borrowed $200,000 from a loan shark and his wife believed him adulterous. Yet, she and agent Bobby Fox point at Alfredo Quintana, editor of a Cuban diaspora magazine, which called him a traitor after a visit to Castro's Cuba, which he was a refugee from. He was beaten by a team mate before the murder but there's more to the Cuban connection.

The suicide squeeze is a play in baseball. In a close or low-scoring game, the team on offense might employ it in order to score an extra insurance run, the tying run, or the winning run. With a baserunner on third base, the runner breaks for home plate as the pitcher delivers the ball to the catcher, while the batter squares up for a sacrifice bunt. The play is so named because by taking off early, combined with the chance the batter might miss the bunt, the incoming runner is metaphorically committing suicide: he is likely to be tagged out at home, and with little to no time to stop and reverse direction, he is also likely to be thrown out retreating to third.
