Description

In this richly complex mystery, best-selling author Martin Cruz Smith paints a stunning backdrop of dazzling excesses and stark deprivation. Havana Bay portrays soulful Russian detective Arkady Renko exploring the dark side of Cuba as he investigates the fatal accident of a Soviet comrade. Still reeling from his wife's untimely death in Moscow, Arkady flies to Cuba to identify an old colleague who has been pulled from Havana Bay. After he points out that the decaying corpse could be any missing person, police officials turn hostile. Suddenly, Arkady must emerge from his depression and uncover a web of corruption, or his new enemies will silence him forever. Martin Cruz Smith's masterful prose transports you to Fidel's fading paradise to search through crumbling buildings, hear riotous island music, and experience the intense tropical sun. The exotic, earthy characters burst from the pages with narrator Frank Muller's dramatic performance.

Professional reviews

"This foray into the murky world of Havana, Cuba, follows Russian investigator Arkady Renko on a convoluted search for the circumstances of the death of a former KGB agent. Narrator Frank Muller's skill with atmosphere is masterfully employed. Martin Cruz Smith and Muller make a rich, heady combination. Portraying a Cuba where the "line between real and ridiculous" is very finely drawn, Muller allows listeners to be woven into a web of intrigue and black magic. Like Renko, the listener is also acutely observant of details and nuances. Not for the inattentive, HAVANA BAY can be savored at levels of sheer descriptive beauty or tangled complexity. A rare treat. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
