It is hard to give this books high marks after you have read his previous two book, which got five stars. This book lacks the ferocity, darkness and the evil characters of the first two books. One of the reason maybe the fact that Mingus is now 60 years old and like me his reflexes have slowed down considerably.

I was going to give this book 2 stars but then the last 80 pages changed my mind . The begining is not bad and the author does a good job of setting up the story and the characters for what one hopes will be a action packed story. Instead what you get is a Frommer's tour of Cuba and a lesson in Spanish translation. For those of you that loved his first two books, it is my opinion you will be somewhat disappointed, on the other hand, I am glad I read it so there is continuity to the next book: "Inaguration Day"
