Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jose Latour delivers a suspenseful, atmospheric novel of intrigue set in contemporary Havana and Miami. Without spy satellites or supercomputers, communist Cuba has relied on its intelligence operatives for the last forty-five years. Colonel Victoria Valiente, one of the most respected officers in the General Directorate of Intelligence, is the Havana-based spymaster of greater Miami. During the past decade, however, her husband has convinced her that Castro?s regime is corrupt and moribund and that they must defect. Buoyed by $2.7 million that he steals electronically and salts away in an online bank, the couple sails to Key West. They have no idea that the FBI is on to them, having coerced Elliot Steil, a Cuban exile living in Miami, to help. This exquisitely crafted, erotically charged novel culminates in an electrifying showdown, offering an inside view into the regime?s dark corners while shedding light on contemporary Cuba.

Review:

"What was it like to be a top Cuban intelligence officer during the 1990s? Latour, a Cuban living in Toronto, creates a surprisingly active agenda for Col. Victoria Valiente, the star of the latest book (after 2004's Havana World Series) in his well-received series about life and crime on Castro's island. The physically nondescript Victoria is a genius as well as a natural spymaster, and by the time she finishes impressing the men above her, she's taken charge of the Greater Miami area, recruiting new agents and uncovering double agents working against Cuba. But along with her success comes the knowledge that Castro's regime has become a disaster. Victoria's husband, a computer expert who's been allowed to travel abroad, convinces her they should leave Cuba — and sets up a scheme to electronically transfer $2.7 million in stolen funds to an account in Key West. Things take an ugly turn when a Cuban working for the FBI finds out what's going on, but Latour's fascinating book remains a thing of beauty. Agent, Tracy Howell at the Gernert Co. (Nov.)"
