Havana~ Killing Castro

Author(s): David Pereda

When an old fisherman is gunned down on a Mexican beach, prominent Miami surgeon Raymond Peters becomes the prime suspect. The dead fisherman is believed to be Fidel Castro, whom Peters helped disguise through clandestine plastic surgery on a trip to Cuba two years earlier. In order to save his own life, the beleaguered doctor must find the killers and retrieve a mysterious journal while outwitting a ruthless woman assassin named Marcela, sent by Castros brother Raul. 

Excerpt: To Marcelas delight, Tula arrived promptly at eight. She paused at the door, scanning the crowded bar. Her red halter dress and black spike heels with ankle straps did the job shed obviously intended them to do. Marcela waved from her small table in the back of the room, her heart quickening. Tula waved back and started skirting the tables. Men and women stared at her as she passed by, triggering in Marcela a strange jealousy.

She rose when Tula reached her table, and both women greeted each other with the customary exchange of kisses on the cheek. Tulas eyes were somber.

"Something wrong?" Marcela asked, sitting down again. "You look"

"Sad?" Tula said, sitting down next to Marcela.

Marcela nodded.

"A friend of mine died recently," Tula said. "A very good friend. We used to come here sometimes. It made me sad when I walked in."

"Sorry," Marcela said. "You want to go some other place?"

"No. This is fine. I need to get over it."

"What did your friend die of?"

"He was murdered."

Marcela raised an eyebrow. "Miami is a violent city."

"You can say that again."

"How did it happen?"

"He was shot in his apartment."

"My God!" Marcela said. "A thief?"

Tears came to Tulas eyes. "Who knows? He was such a good person. I cant imagine anyone wanting to kill him."

"Poor thing. Did they catch who did it?"

"Not yet."

"Do the police have any leads?"

Tula shook her head and suddenly started sobbing.

"Now, now," Marcela said, leaning forward and patting her hand. "You need a drink." She waved to the waiter. "What would you like?"

"A mojito."

"Just what I was going to order myself," Marcela said as the waiter arrived. "Two mojitos. And when you see these glasses empty again, you bring some more."

"Yes, maam," the waiter said.

An hour and four mojitos later, Tula had to go to the bathroom. Marcela got up to go with her. When Tulas head was turned, Marcela slipped two roofies into her drink.
