Havana Confidential

Award-winning true crime writer T. J. English has a new book exploring mobster Cuba under Batista, Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost It to the Revolution. English has an excellent background for such a work, having written about everything from the Irish mob of Hell's Kitchen to a Vietnamese gang in Chinatown. So pour yourself a mojito, and enjoy. English's Havana Nocturne will be out in early May 2008.
