A Havana Mystery

Former Havana detective Marlene Martínez has booked a week-long cruise to Mexico and the Caribbean with her niece, Sarita, as the girl’s quinceañera present. Sarita is thrilled to discover that a Cuban telenovela star, Carloalberto, is also aboard. Even while trying to keep her niece away from the unsettlingly handsome actor, Marlene gets the feeling Carloalberto is in some kind of trouble — he is constantly on edge, and shady characters seem to find their way to him. When murder occurs aboard the North Star, Marlene will rely on instincts she hoped never to use again.

“Well-drawn, amusing characters lift this witty novella from Dovalpage starring former Havana, Cuba, police detective Marlene Martínez . . . just enough red herrings to keep readers on their toes. Fans of lighter mysteries will have fun.”
