Format: Paperback
A decent suspense thriller, nothing particularly exciting, but passable entertainment. Definitely a step up from other suspense wannabes, which turn you off and sound fake from the first page.

Hostage in Havana opens well and lets you cozy up with the characters enough to make you want to follow them.

I'm not comfortable with the type used: it's not standard, and sticks out as I was reading. It feels too casual and amateurish, like it was for a fun teen book.

The cover is odd, too. There is a girl running away from some evil forces in an ominous car along a dark street, but she appears to be smiling.

I'd recommend this book for a quick weekend read, but fans of Robert Ludlum, W.E.B. Griffin, Lee Child, and other fast-paced thrillers will find this less of a page-turner.

Noel Hynd brings another great read in Hostage In Havana the first book in the Cuban Trilogy!
Fiesty U.S. Treasury agent, Alexander LaDuca (Alex for short) has found out that "The Dosi family is planning a counterattack....They've been hired to kill you." (p. 72) In the next few pages the action, the adventure and the romance are all spell bounding!
Alex has two missions that she must accomplish: First, she must meet up
with Roland Violette, an exiled agent, who has traded names of undercover spies around the world for money, and bring him back to the United States. Secondly, she'll pose as Paul Guarneri's wife so that he can relocate hundreds of thousands of dollars that were hidden somewhere in Cuba by his father before the family escaped "The Regime."
Then there's that assassin who uses the "a new bullet that was a head of the glass technology used by Mercedes Benz . . . Quite an efficient bit of shooting from a about four hundred meters at a fast-movingcar." (p. 73)
This read is a wonderful mix of smooth talking agents and rough cohorts that creates quite a spicy adventure!
If you've read the Russian Trilogy then you'll be familiar with Alex and the people she met that helped her with her spiritual journey. If you haven't read the Russian Trilogy you won't be lost when you read this book.
This is one of those GREAT suspense novels that are must read for summer!

very historical and yet very much suspense. I would recommend it as the first book of this series but I am sad the second book is not available.

Hostage in Havana is another example of what has made Noel Hynd one of my favorite authors. The book reads like a true crime, and is definitely a grabber from page one. I am looking forward to the next two books in the series.

I know there are lots of 5 star ratings on this and maybe I would have given it a 5 star if...I had know to start out with the Russian Trilogy where the main character Alexandra LaDuca was introduced. In Hostage in Havana, as things were mentioned about her past I felt left out, like I was missing some important events and didn't understand why the author was not explaining it more. Then at the end of the book I see the advertisements of the Russian Trilogy where it all starts with Alex. So, if you are reading this, please start with the Russian Trilogy and maybe you'll enjoy it more. Another thing with me is I love historical novels, but I don't like a lot of descriptions and this one was so full of historical history that it was too much for me. But the story line and the non-stop action was good. So, it just depends on what you like and where you start in the Alex LaDuca story...please start with the Russian Trilogy and then you may just love it.

Hynd has moved from with WWII settings to the modern political climate with ease. Held my interest from beginning to end.
