Praise for the Havana Quartet:ldquo;Talk about unexpected discoveries, Havana Black is a revelation. A lush, frank, captivating murder mystery.rdquo;- The Atlantic Monthlyldquo;Drenched with that beguiling otherness so appealing to fans of mysteries of other cultures, Havana Blue will also appeal to those who appreciate the sultry lyricism of James Lee Burke.rdquo;- Booklistldquo;A magnificent Dickensian evocation of the cityrsquo;s street hassle; it takes in drug dealers, hookers, newly-weds, the hotels and baseball fans, and captures the enthralling gloom of apocalyptic early-evening Havana.rdquo;- The Times Literary Supplementldquo;Condersquo;s quest follows the basic rhythm of the whodunit, but Padura syncopates Havana Red with brilliant riffs on Cuban sex, society, religion, even food.rdquo;- The IndependentMario Conde has retired from the police force and makes a living trading in antique books. Havana is now flooded with dollars, populated by pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers, and other hunters of the night. In the book collection of a rich Cuban who fled after the fall of Batista, Conde discovers an article about Violeta del Rio, a beautiful bolero singer of the 1950s who disappeared mysteriously. A murder soon follows. This is a crime story set in todayrsquo;s darker Cuba, but it is also an evocation of the Havana of Batista, the city of a hundred night clubs where the paths of Marlon Brando and Meyer Lansky crossed.Probably Leonardo Padurarsquo;s best book, Havana Fever is many things: a suspenseful crime novel, a cruel family saga, and an ode to literature and his beloved, ravaged island.
