I should've liked this book.

The mob. A reporter with a one-armed girlfriend (from the circus, no less). The zoo's lion feeder (and some grisly details). A transvestite sister. Glamorous Cuba.

But somehow, it just didn't come together for me. It was well written and SHOULD have been interesting, but it never quite was. I didn't dislike it, per se. Just didn't like it, either.

Maybe something was lost in translation.
