Publisher's Summary

Cuando recién llegado de sus vacaciones recibe la noticia de la muerte de su amigo Estanis, Daniel no se lo puede creer. Pero mucho menos se cree las circunstancias de esa muerte. Enviado a Cuba por el periódico para el que ambos trabajan para escribir un reportaje sobre las jineteras y los españoles que viajan por el sexo, poco antes de morir Estanis le contó a su mujer que había descubierto algo que podía convertirse en el reportaje de la década. Pero ¿realmente había descubierto algo tan relevante como para que lo asesinaran? ¿O el nuevo reportaje era una excusa para poder echar una cana al aire con alguna jinetera?

Armado con las notas y las fotografías que Estanis había tomado en la isla, Daniel Ros deberá retomar el reportaje que el periódico había encargado inicialmente. Sin embargo, mientras sigue los pasos de su amigo por la isla y habla con todos los que trataron con él, la curiosidad y la necesidad de limpiar el nombre de Estanis le empujarán a investigar una muerte más que sospechosa.

Good story

Daniel, news reporter, amateur detective goes to Cuba to learn about his friend’s death from the elusive woman who last saw his friend. An exciting moment in Cuba’s history makes an excellent background for this story. The author creates an exciting and satisfying ending to the mystery.

good crime story set against the poverty of Cuba

A thoroughly enjoyable and well written detective story set against the poverty of Castro's Cuba, and the sex industry deriving from it. The language is staightforward and the style simple and direct - appropriate for the characters and situation. The sympathy for the poverty of the Cubans, and the very liberal narrator keep the darkness of corruption out of sight, making it entertainment with a message rather than a deep analysis of the situation. Juan Manuel Martinez reads it without rush but with lots of momentum. Highly recommended for good, consciousness-raising entertainmet.
