Tango for a Torturer

by Daniel Chavarria

A freak motor accident, a truly vile secret policeman, voodoo, a prostitute with a heart of gold, and revenge all come together in this political thriller.

Don't expect hardboiled, although it is. It's much more sexy and funny than that. And Cuba sizzles.

And it has a happy ending (if you think like me) but what it is would be telling.


'And I told him straight that the shoes were hot property in El Cotorro; because I might have my problems and things, Captain, but I'm a serious guy; and I didn't want Velasco walking around El Cotorro in those shoes, because someone would steal then from him.'
