The Beggar’s Opera: An Inspector Ramirez Novel, by Peggy Blair
(Pintail, $16, 9780143186427)
“The Beggar’s Opera introduces readers to a once beautiful but now crumbling Havana and a cast of wonderful characters, including the sensitive and cunning Inspector Ricardo Ramirez and medical investigator Hector Apiro. The stark picture of life in modern day Cuba adds atmosphere and interest to the complex criminal investigation of the mystery — the rape and death of an eight-year-old boy. This is a totally captivating debut to a mystery series with an unforgettable setting and compelling characters.” —Nancy McFarlane, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC
