Description

A "dark, rich, and satisfying" novel of mobsters, baseball, and 1950s Cuba (Entertainment Weekly). 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. But rival mob boss Joe Bonnano, working with a team of Cuba's boldest and most ingenious criminals, plans to hijack Lanksy's fortune. The heist goes off brilliantly-until Bonnano's point man is shot dead. As Lansky's man in the police department investigates the case, he is caught up in a colorful and dangerous world of gangsters, misfits, and double-crosses . . . "A lively, entertaining read." -Publishers Weekly "The characters are fascinating, the story compelling . . . You couldn't ask for more." -Orlando Sentinel "Suspenseful . . . captures the sights, sounds, smells and rhythms of Havana." -The Miami Herald
