Many are left wondering about the final hand of the old bootlegger and gambler.As the trail winds through neighborhoods rich and poor, enmeshing the innocent and corrupt alike all the way down to the streets and casinos of Havana, an extraordinary story of revenge, honor, and greed emerges. For Charlie Wall had his secrets, and he guarded them well. And those secrets could destroy a criminal empire and ignite a revolution.

Love the Details

Being a resident of the Tampa Bay area for over 30 years, I love the rich details about the area and the fascinating look at this big event in our area's history. This was not my favorite mystery but was still quite an enjoyable diversion. Several of my co-workers, who stil read the old-fashioned way, are planning to buy the book.
