With Havana World Series, one of Latin America's premier crime writers offers a blend of baseball, American mobsters, and corrupt cops. It is the fall of 1958 and all of Cuba is riveted to the World Series-the New York Yankees are playing the Milwaukee Braves and the infamous Meyer Lansky's gambling empire is raking in millions in bets. With a team of Cuba's boldest and most ingenious criminals, rival mob boss Joe Bonnano plans to hijack Lanksy's fortune. The heist goes off brilliantly until Bonnano's point man is double-crossed and shot dead. As Lansky's man in the police department investigates the murder, he suspects the involvement of career criminal Mariano Contreras-and to get Bonnano out of the Cuban racket once and for all, Lansky will stop at nothing to track Contreras down. Alive with vibrant detail and a fantastic cast of misfit characters, Havana World Series is an entertaining and suspenseful story.
