Through the early 80s, Lorenz continued to do odd jobs for the F.B.I., most notably infiltrating the Marielitos, Castro’s boat people, and working undercover in a stolen-car ring operated out of Miami.

Still, her saga was enough for Vanity Fair to describe her in 1993 as “a patron saint of conspiracy buffs.” It was also enough to flesh out a number of books, including “Marita: One Woman’s Extraordinary Tale of Love and Espionage From Castro to Kennedy” (1993), written with Ted Schwartz. “I’d write these notes,” she says.
