Havana Blue

by Leonardo Padura
£8.99   paperback  Bitter Lemon Press (2007)

Havana Blue by Leonardo Padura Lieutenant Mario Conde is suffering from a terrible New Year's Eve hangover. Though it's the middle of a weekend, he is asked to urgently investigate the mysterious disappearance of Rafael Morin, a high-level business manager in the Cuban nomenklatura. Conde remembered Morin from their student days: good-looking, brilliant, a 'reliable comrade' who always got what he wanted, including Tamara, the girl Conde was after.
 
But Rafael Morin's exemplary rise from a poor barrio and his picture-perfect life hide more than one suspicious episode worthy of investigation. While pursuing the case in a decaying but adored Havana, Conde confronts his lost love for Tamara and the dreams and illusions of his generation.
