When the corpse of a Russian is hauled from the oily waters of Havana Bay, Arkady Renko comes to Cuba to identify the body. Looking for the killer, he discovers a city of faded loneliness, unexpected danger, and bewildering contradictions. His investigation introduces him to a beautiful Cuban policewoman; to the rituals of Santeria; to an American fugitive and a group of ruthless mercenaries. In this place where all things Russian are despised, where Hemingway fished and the KGB flourished, where the hint of music is always in the air, Arkady finds a trail of deceit that reaches halfway around the world–and a reason to relish his own life again.

I very much enjoyed this book. M.C.Smith is an incredible writer. He holds one's interest with his vivid descriptions, character development, suspense but my favorite part of all...how he presents Arkady.
Please...more Arkady books. I have read them all..just recently, I reread Gorky Park.
