More on Summer Reading
OK, I can admit it, I'm reading a trashy detective novel. Well its summertime! And anyway the plot of Havana Heat by Carolina Garcia-Aguilera hinges on an attempt to return stolen art to its rightful owners. Right up my alley! But instead of the more common theme of the Nazis as art looters, this time its Fidel Castro's government. The protagonist, Miami private investigator Lupe Solano, even consults with the Art Loss Register in London. Hey, she did her homework. So what if the writing is a bit plodding and she works the Cuban connection into the ground ... there's plenty of drama to keep you turning the pages.
