Description

The gripping, fast-paced sequel to the critically acclaimed The Beggar’s Opera

Detective Mike Ellis returns home after he is cleared in the death of a young boy while on vacation in Cuba, only to discover that his estranged wife, Hilary, is dead, and that he’s the main suspect. Meanwhile, Inspector Ramirez, head of the Havana Major Crimes Unit, is dispatched to Ottawa to take custody of a Cuban priest apprehended by authorities while in possession of a laptop full of child pornography. Ramirez will uncover a web of deceit and depravity that extends from the corridors of power in Ottawa to the hallowed halls of the Vatican—and back again.

Editorial Review

Praise for The Beggar’s Opera:
 
“Decaying but beautiful Havana provides the atmospheric backdrop for Blair’s absorbing debut, the first in a series introducing Ricardo Ramirez.” – Publishers Weekly
 
“Havana is as much a character as the people in Canadian author Blair’s fast-paced story.” – New York Post
