Reading for Havana: Killing Castro - 2/26

The first reading of Havana: Killing Castro will take place at Montford Books at 6:30 PM on Friday, February 26.

The event promises to be quite exciting and will have several overseas visitors present, including Princess Elizabeth Von Alexander-Bismarck who is flying from Paris for the occasion. The inimitable Rosita La-La and her dancing partner, Agustin "El Apache" from the Salsationals will get us all in a Cuban mood by showing us how to dance salsa. And Juan Benavides, the virtuoso Flameco guitarist, will accompany my readings strumming his guitar.

Havana: Killing Castro, a Readers Favorite award-winner, is the second book in the Havana Series of thrillers and continues the adventures and misadventures of the same cast of characters you met in Havana: Top Secret.

Here's a brief synopsis of the book:

When an old fisherman is gunned down on a Mexican beach, prominent Miami surgeon Raymond Peters becomes the prime suspect. The dead fisherman is believed to be Fidel Castro, whom Dr. Raymond Peters helped disguise through clandestine plastic surgery on a trip to Cuba two years earlier. In order to save his own life, the beleaguered doctor must find the killers and retrieve a mysterious journal while outwitting a ruthless woman assassin named Marcela, sent by Castro’s brother Raul.

So mark this event on your calendar and come join the fun!
