earlier Cubra Libre is an entertaining crime novel set in a bygone era In this case, the time period is the days leading up to and during the Spanish American War, with the crimes involving smuggling guns to Cuba and absconding with ransom money.As he did in The Hot Kid, Leonard in Cubra Libre offers up an interesting cast of characters, artfully juggles interrelated storylines, and demonstrates a keen ear for conversation There s Like his book The Hot Kid fro Let me begin by saying I like El Leonard whether it is in book form for the movies that I have seen I get his humor, as dark as it can be at times, so its easy to say that I liked this book about a cowboy who is talked into gathering horses to sell in Cuba He partners with an old friend, who uses the horses which frankly, don t make anything for them as cover for gun running Add into that story is the sinking of the USS Maine and the battle between the insurrection and the Guardias an Let me begin by saying I like El Leonard

is both western and heist, with a lot of historical references about the American intervention in Cuba after the explosion of the Maine in the port of Havana I know it is a recently published book, but I kept seeing Jimmy Stewart and Lauren Bacall as the main protagonists as I read through the novel Good cast of secondary characters, and a feeling of inevitability about the progression of the

novel, Cuba Libre describes the island s cities and towns with just enough information to make the reader want to see this country for themselves I liked the love story involving the southern American
