    one sentence in Pelican Brief

    [FONT='&#48148][FONT='&#48148] I don't understand the underlined red sentence. Would you let me know what it means? In other words ? [/FONT][/FONT]
    [FONT='&#48148][FONT='&#48148]Havana was a perfect sanctuary.[/FONT][FONT='&#48148] It mattered not if ten or a hundred countries had bounties on his throat[/FONT][FONT='&#48148]. Fidel was an admirer and occasional client.[/FONT] [/FONT]
    [FONT='&#48148]Thank you very much! [/FONT]

    bounty (noun), payment or reward (especially from a government) for acts such as catching criminals ...

    All the best.
