Publisher's Summary

From Martin Cruz Smith, the internationally best-selling author of Gorky Park, comes a mystery that reaches international proportions in this entertaining fourth title in the Arkady Renko series.

Former Inspector for the Moscow Militsiya, Arkady Renko, is summoned to Cuba to identify a liquefying corpse, dragged from the oily waters of Havana Bay. Renko finds himself in a decaying country, the final recess of Communism - a place where Russia is despised, exotic rituals take precedence and unexpected danger meets bewildering contradictions. After a harrowing experience that has left Renko on the verge of suicide, this mystery leads him on a trail of deceit that reaches international proportions, and gives him a reason to relish his own life again.

Probably my favorite

I’m delighted that Havana Bay is now available digitally in this recording—which is MUCH better than the previous one on compact disk. I love this book from its near constant humor to the heart-breaking depiction of Irina’s senseless (but very Russian) death and Arkady’s deep despair. Osario glows, Luna glowers, Chango nods, and Arcady slowly figures out why Pribluda, his most difficult friend, ended up a neumatico. I wish I could write a book like this.
