Dancing to "Almendra" by Mayra Montero

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Alternating stories of a young journalist investigating the organized crime activity in gambling in 1950's Havana and the confessions of his girlfriend, a one-armed former circus performer.  Strange and bloody tale and I found it hard to care about the characters, although the Cuban atmosphere was authentic and rich.  You could almost hear the danzon music.
