Luis Montez is a legendary Cuban detective who, in the twilight of his career, takes on a case that will test his skills to their limits. The victim is a wealthy businessman, Manuel Garrido, who has been found dead in his home, with no apparent clues as to how he died. As Montez begins to investigate, he quickly realizes that this is not a simple case - Garrido was a client of Montez's who had been in trouble with the law in the past. As Montez digs deeper into Garrido's past, he uncovers a web of secrets and deceit that could have led to his death. Montez must race against the clock to determine who killed Garrido and why.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
