Descrizione

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
