In this latest our intrepid forensic accountant is tasked with another mission this time to Cuba he goes to find a friend, who was kidnapped and put in prison.
This is another suspenseful story in the Casino series hard to put down. Mr. Tempest creates interesting intrigues that pulls you in and manages to keep you captivated till his protagonist wraps up his mission. This one reads more like an espionage thriller than a mystery. The Castro era is winding down, Cuba is in a process of a big political change and officials are jockeying for position but some are very corrupted, Oliver must tread the line very carefully.
The story keeps a steady pace, is exciting and full of red herrings especially when Oliver mounts an attack on an island prison trying to reach his friend .Throughout this nail biting journey, one crisis after another happens to our loveable adventurer. Along the way we have details of old style Cuba, its 1920’s music and how things were then and how things are since the Castro era. Recurring characters from previous adventures are weaved in to show us that Oliver still has to deal with bribery and intimidation at every turn. No dull moment with Oliver.
“Casino Havana”, has an interesting and well-written plot with good characterization and is an enjoyable entertainment from cover to cover.
There's even a hurricane; the same location as Irma landed in FL yesterday, 9/10/17. It's an exciting book, to tell more means spoilers and this book is best read without a review or book report. I contacted the author after reading Casino Qaddafi and volunteered to ARC.
Casino Caribbean - A well written, intriguing, informative suspense with a well developed plot and some very interesting characters. I couldn't put the book down. Without doing a book report, I still can only say, any more would be spoilers. Enjoy the Casino series, so far they've all been excellent. Tempest is on par with Ludlum and Follett and De Mille, among others.
Casino Qaddafi - An interesting, well written suspense novel with a well developed plot and characters. The subject immerses the reader making it hard to put down the book. I look forward to more by this author. I received this book from some author's website doing a giveaway of action books.
I loved that the plot was very involved and just when I thought that the story had finished, another crisis reared its head, keeping my interest right to the last page. The descriptions of the locations and the situation in Cuba was brilliant, and although I have never visited Cuba, I feel that I really know the island now, and understand the political issues a lot better than I did before.
I did receive a complimentary copy of the book but I have voluntarily written this honest review.
Having visited Cuba a couple of times, Tempest's use of details such as the old-style Cuban music at Buena Vista Social Club, particularly the 1920's iconic song 'Guantanamera', and the guilt felt when piling food from overly generous buffets onto our plates and drinking imported wine while knowing Cubans still used ration books was so evocative!
Weaving characters from previous adventures in the series e.g. Frankie Leon, aka Larry Franklin prior to cosmetic surgery, from Casino Caribbean & Casino Qadaffi, through this latest book, you are reminded of how Steele has previously dealt with bribery, intimidation and murder. Combine Tempest's usual fast paced thrillers with the drama of trying to survive tropical storms and hurricanes, and you know you're in for a nail-biting read!
