(Review is by David's wife) I am a fan of the "Dead" trilogy and was happy to see this new book released w/o any delay on Audible.
I recommend this book, it's a great listen, the narrator is perfect for this book. This is not like the "Dead" trilogy, it's a different story told from a female POV and I thought it was spot on. The beginning starts with a great hook, I had to know how Mercado got to that point and enjoyed the flashbacks and background and waited for the story to unfold... as it always does in a McKinty novel. While I know little of Cuba and the conditions there, I feel the author did his research and the details certainly feel authentic, I was educated and entertained.
I certainly didn't feel this story was smut but is not a children's story, it's about tough situations and people, not good fairies.
I recommend this book (and McKinty's other books, as well) for well developed stories and characters that will remain with you long after you finish the book.

Having enjoyed The Dead Yard by McKinty I thought I'd enjoy this, his latest book. This one was so much slower and had waaay too many digressions that were plain boring. Disappointed - good when the action is happening, but all the description was way too much for my 90 minute commute. Narrator was okay but, overall too much fluff to hold me engrossed. Certanly didn't stay in the car to listen to this one as I did with Dead Yard.
