I am hoping you might have noticed that I try to avoid talking about contemporary events, but I feel the need to mention that sometimes voting can be very important. Am I talking about what has been going on in the US? You decide.

Back in the 1950s in Cuba, there was a democratically elected government that was removed in a coup by a General Batista who knew he was about to lose the popular vote. Roll on a handful of years and the people get restless and dislike Batista’s flavor of far-from-benign dictatorship. The Castro brothers appear on the scene attacking Batista’s military strongholds and the rest, they say, is history.

Why do I mention this? Well, while the people of Cuba were dealing with the consequences of the macro politics in their country, American gangsters moved onto the island to turn the place into a Latin American Las Vegas. And, naturally, that is where Alex Cohen steps in as I write Cuban Heel, book five in the series.

Vote often, vote early…

  1. So very happy to hear that there is another Alex Cohen book on the way. I just finished Casino Chisler and I am looking for more. Can’t wait for it to get here.

    1. Thank you. It’ll be out next year, hopefully before Easter but I must admit it’s been the hardest Alex book to write so far – trying to squish in the history and not let it take over the story.
