Rum, Cigars, and Corpses – Jerold Last

Roger and Suzanne have to solve a cold case in a hot climate. Weeks after a suspicious accident in Havana claimed the life of a tourist, the detective couple retraces the victim’s steps as they try to figure out whodunit and why. Intrigue and conspiracy abound in this international thriller, set on a tropical island that U. S. citizens have been forbidden to visit for more than half a century. There is lots of rum in the mojitos and plenty of cigars in the shops. And did I mention the corpses? Visit contemporary Cuba before the expected onslaught of massive American tourism changes the island’s culture from a former Spanish colony in the Caribbean to what many Cubans fear will be another Disneyland.
