Review by Amazon Customer:
This book was an easy read with such an unexpected surprise ending! The author captures the reader with short chapters that I found myself flying through to try to figure out what was going to happen. A great book to take on vacation!
Review by Alexander Blevens:
A hugely entertaining novel with an eclectic cast of characters and rollercoaster plot—think Keystone Cops meet the Sopranos.
John Anthony Miller weaves a story with wannabe Cuban revolutionaries, corrupt police, not-so-innocent damsels, and heavy-handed mobsters against a backdrop of ’56 Ford coupes, dark rum, roulette wheels, and cigars—did I mention crocodiles?
None of the characters are really whom you think they are. Put this book first on your list of summer beach reads; you will be happy you did.
