Cuban Thriller - Pulp Fiction for Leisure

My parents are exiled from Cuba, so I'm always interested in happenings in and about the country. A new book provides a noir-ish look at the country.

Fidel's Last Days: A Novel

Interested in a thriller about Cuba? Here's a book review of the latest to be published.

From the review:

"Throughout “Fidel’s Last Days,” Merullo portrays Cuba as a country stifled by fear and an oppressive secret police — a nation ripe, even desperate, for revolution. Perhaps Americans will soon have the chance to find out for themselves if he’s right."

I'm sure the book will get some attention as 2009 marks the 50th anniversary of Castro's coming to power.
