A moody slice of Cuban noir from the acclaimed author of Outcast: `A masterful book ... passionate, frightening and extremely violent' Independent on Sunday

Years ago, a fleeing Batista supporter reportedly stashed an incredibly valuable collection of diamonds in a Havanan apartment. Now a pair of Americans (posing as Canadians) have come to Cuba to find the jewels on behalf of the man's blind son, who promised them a share of the fortune if they can make it back to New York.

Arriving at the apartment, they have to negotiate its present occupants - a mismatched brother and sister: he a Cuban wide boy scraping a living out of selling girls, pornography and drugs to foreigners; she an upright, vulnerable, beautiful woman with a tragic past. (Their father, the hero of the Cuban revolution, is in gaol after shooting his wife's lover.) Add to this is a hitman the Americans unwisely hired to get rid of one of the obstacles in their path, who now wants a piece of the action himself, and the pressure is on to find the diamonds and get out of Havana - before someone else gets their hands on them.
