Review of Havana: Top Secret
5.0 out of 5 stars
Fast-paced, tight and intense!, November 7, 2011
Patricia M. Terrell "p.m.terrell"

This book starts off at a gallop and never lets up. David Pereda's writing is tight and intense. Each chapter seems to end with a cliff-hanger that will keep you turning the pages well into the night. I like the way he moves back and forth between the female assassin, Marcela, and the doctor, Raymond, and how effortlessly he blends their very different backgrounds together as he propels the story toward the final breathtaking climactic scene.

Pereda's descriptions of places and people are unique and can create a visual in just a few words, which keeps the story moving. This is the first in a series, and I am anxious to find out what happens to the main characters as the series progresses. He ends this book with a great beginning to the next one, which guarantees I'll be coming back for more!

In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before this author is discovered and placed on the bestseller lists. I understand they are shopping his books around for a movie deal, and I for one would be front row and center to watch any movie made from his books. The characters are unforgettable, the plot intense, the backdrop exotic - and this book has all the makings of a bestseller.
