Bimini Run is the 6th novel of 7 Howard Hunt published under his own name up to 1950, then again much later from the 1980s onward (save 1973's The Berlin Ending). He is known to have used pseudonyms Robert Dietrich, P. S. Donoghue, David St. John, Gordon Davis, John Baxter in the intervening years.

 

As well as his writing career, E. Howard Hunt was sentenced to 2.5 to 8 years for Conspiracy, Burglary and Illegal Wiretapping for his role in the Watergate Scandal, for which he served 33 months. He served with the CIA from 1949 - 1970, and was heavily involved in the 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état, the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion, Watergate and various associated clandestine operations for Nixon, and was implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, including as one of the Three Tramps. His children from his first marriage later tried to sell his 'deathbed confessions' regarding his part in the plot, though they proved unsuccessful and unsubstantiated. Several fans of his novels have remarked his publishing career was more successful than his attempts at being a spy, perhaps one can only inform the other in the direction of fiction.
