Death Under the Perseids
Dovalpage takes us into the Havana the average cruise ship tourist wouldn't see and into a murder mystery most of the other characters might assume her narrator Mercedes Spivey too uneducated to unravel. She sees red flags long before others precisely because, unlike them, she isn't blinded by ego. So when her husband disappears on his way to an academic lecture arranged by the same mysterious entity who offered them a "free" cruise to her hometown of Havana, she is hardly surprised. Peppered with pithy dialogue and vivid description of Cuba's food and people, this book is a multifaceted pleasure. Recommended by Kelly
There’s no such thing as a free cruise in Cuban American author Teresa Dovalpage's addictively clever new Havana mystery.
