Very cool to see this review in the New York Post under “Required Reading”!
The Beggar’s Opera
by Peggy Blair (Pintail)
For mystery fans who need a break from both our winter weather and the proliferation of Nordic crime tales, here’s a first-time novelist introducing Inspector Ricardo Ramirez of the Major Crimes Unit of the Cuban National Police. Havana is as much a character as the people in Canadian author Blair’s fast-paced story, which has Canadian cop Mike Ellis in Cuba for a warm-weather trip he hopes will fix his ailing marriage. Instead, he winds up arrested for murder. Ramirez is on the case.
