Normally, I love José Latour, but this time the first 30 or so pages were "He did this... then he did that... then this". Boooring.

This is an excellent “political” thriller. Author José Letour deserves to be better known and appreciated, as the present work is far superior to most bestsellers of the genre.

I have read all of José Latour's books, and this may be his very best.

The classic Latour suspense and tension are there all the way through the story, but the structure of the book, moving back and forth through time and space puts it a step above his other other work.

He also manages to tell real, powerful and moving stories about his characters. I was so deeply connected and invested in them all that the climax moved me to tears.

Highly recommended.

José Latour was born in Havana, Cuba, on April 24, 1940. He started reading at a very tender age, progressing from Hans Christian Andersen and the Grimm brothers as a child to Raymond Chandler and Erle Stanley Gardner in his late teens.

By the time the Cuban Revolution came to power, José, who was 19, had become an ardent supporter. He joined the Ministry of Treasury as a junior financial analyst a
