This Edgar Award–winning crime novel offers “pulp fiction in Castro’s Cuba” (Martin Cruz Smith, author The Girl from Venice). Alicia is a smart, confident, and gorgeous prostitute in Havana. She is not a streetwalker. Rather, she displays her wares on bicycle, seducing men through the irresistible pull of her fine derrière. John King, her new client, is a Canadian businessman with a striking resemblance to movie star Alain Delon. This is no ordinary john, and as Alicia’s feelings for him grow, she sees in their relationship the possibility of escape from her dead-end life in a city plagued with scarcity. So when King’s wealthy and sexually deviant boss is suddenly killed, Alicia and John hatch a get-rich-quick scheme. A web of deception is woven—but it will be quickly and disastrously unraveled, and only one person will be able to say adiós to the dilapidated island of Cuba . . . “Fun, fast, and intelligent . . . A madcap caper full of twisted sex, devious schemes and high-rolling hijinks . . . Will leave readers clamoring for more.” —Publishers Weekly “The book’s cynical take on ambition and greed is tempered by humor and humanity.” —The New York Times “Impossible to put down. This is a great read.” —Library Journal

Adiós Muchachos is a candid insider’s account of the leftist Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. During the 1970s, Sergio Ramírez led prominent intellectuals, priests, and business leaders to support the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), against Anastasio Somoza’s dictatorship. After the Sandinistas overthrew the Somoza regime in 1979, Ramírez served as vice-president under Daniel Ortega from 1985 until 1990, when the FSLN lost power in a national election. Disillusioned by his former comrades’ increasing intolerance of dissent and resistance to democratization, Ramírez defected from the Sandinistas in 1995 and founded the Sandinista Renovation Movement. In Adiós Muchachos, he describes the utopian aspirations for liberation and reform that motivated the Sandinista revolution against the Somoza regime, as well as the triumphs and shortcomings of the movement’s leadership as it struggled to turn an insurrection into a government, reconstruct a country beset by poverty and internal conflict, and defend the revolution against the Contras, an armed counterinsurgency supported by the United States. Adiós Muchachos was first published in 1999. Based on a later edition, this translation includes Ramírez’s thoughts on more recent developments, including the re-election of Daniel Ortega as president in 2006.

«No había leído la autobiografía de Sergio Ramírez, Adiós muchachos, y acabo de hacerlo, conmovido. Es un libro sereno, muy bien escrito.» Mario Vargas Llosa, Piedra de toque, El País. Una novela del ganador del Premio Cervantes 2017. Con la pérdida de las elecciones generales en 1990, el proceso iniciado por la revolución sandinista contra el dictador Somoza en 1979 se detuvo en seco, y con él también se difuminaron los sueños, anhelos y esperanzas de cientos de miles de ciudadanos que participaron en aquel proceso transformador. Sergio Ramírez, miembro de la dirigencia revolucionaria y vicepresidente en la fórmula con Daniel Ortega, fue testigo excepcional de una utopía que se extendió más allá de las fronteras nicaragüenses. Adiós muchachos es la memoria de una generación que luchó por unos ideales de rebeldía comunes, y que, si bien no pudo ver cumplidos todos sus objetivos de justicia, riqueza y desarrollo, siente el orgullo de haber traído la democracia a su país, Nicaragua, cuando las ideologías parecen desvanecerse. Esta edición lleva un nuevo prólogo del autor, que pone en perspectiva sus reflexiones críticas tras el regreso al poder del Frente Sandinista, con el propio Daniel Ortega a la cabeza. Reseñas: «El talento narrativo del autor domina este libro. Rescata del olvido una revolución que despertó enormes esperanzas y conmovidas adhesiones.» Javier Pradera, Babelia «Más allá de las ideologías Adiós muchachos encierra el interés de lo auténtico y lo honesto.» Carmen Rodríguez Santos, ABC

Adiós muchachos es una suerte de comedia policial encantadora, de un delicioso erotismo y cautivante ambientación tropical, que tiene como principales protagonistas a una joven, Alicia, que se prostituye en bicicleta mediante un ingenioso truco; Víctor King, un hombre muy parecido a Alain Delon, ambicioso pero simpático buscador de galeones hundidos, que parece caer en la trampa de Alicia pero a poco andar se convierte de “víctima” en cazador y, luego, merced a ciertos avatares del destino, en cómplice; Van Dongen, un holandés de colosal nariz, anarquista y bohemio, que sin embargo es el hombre de con?anza del multimillonario Hendryck Groote, quien a su vez tiene una sorprendente doble vida. Una historia delirante pero muy creíble merced a la habilidad del narrador, que combina, a un tiempo, el desenfado de la picaresca, la rigurosidad del policial, el ingenio de una buena comedia y algunos memorables pasajes de humor negro. Y, por si fuera poco, un epílogo capaz de satisfacer los paladares más exigentes.

“Paul Vidich’s likable and reluctant spy, George Mueller, will keep readers guessing in this eerily real Cuba of 1958. The Good Assassin is a keen historical adventure from the best noir tradition.”—Elizabeth Kostova, #1 New York Times bestselling author “The Good Assassin opens up Hemingway’s Cuba. Possessing Alan Furst’s attention for period detail and the deft character touches of John Le Carré, Vidich has quickly carved out a place for himself among the very first rank of espionage writers. It’s a masterful effort and the author’s best work to date.”—Michael Harvey, New York Times bestselling author of The Chicago Way “The Good Assassin is first-rate literary espionage . . . Author Paul Vidich has evoked not only the intrigue and brutality of Batista’s Cuba, but the island itself . . . a masterful work of noir fiction.”—Susan Isaacs, New York Times bestselling author of A Hint of Strangeness Paul Vidich follows up his acclaimed debut spy thriller with a suspenseful tale of Cold War espionage set in 1950s Cuba, as foreign powers compete to influence the outcome of a revolution. Former CIA Agent George Mueller arrives in Havana in August 1958—the last months before the fall of Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista—to look into the activities of Toby Graham, a CIA officer suspected of harboring sympathies for the rebel forces fighting the unpopular Batista regime. Mueller knew Graham as an undergraduate and later they were colleagues in Berlin fighting the Soviet NKVD. Under the guise of their long acquaintance Mueller is recruited to vet rumors that Graham is putting weapons, covertly provided by the CIA to Batista, into the hands of Castro’s forces. Public exposure of the CIA weapons mission, and the activity of one rogue agent, threaten to embarrass the agency. Mueller uncovers a world of deceit as the FBI, CIA, and State Department compete to influence the outcome of the revolution in the face of the brutal dictatorship’s imminent collapse. Graham, meanwhile, is troubled by the hypocrisy of a bankrupt US foreign policy, and has fallen in love with a married American woman, Liz Malone. Paul Vidich has written a powerful story of ideals, passions, betrayals, and corrupting political rivalries in the months before Castro’s triumphant march into Havana on New Year’s Day 1959. This sequel showcases the widely praised talents of Paul Vidich, who Booklist says, “writes with an economy of style that acclaimed novelists might do well to emulate.”

From the hot writer everybody’s talking about — the author of the sensational Havana Best Friends. Elliot Steill, the product of a brief union between his Cuban mother and an American-born labourer, is an unhappy teacher in Havana when a man claiming to be a friend of Steill’s deceased father arrives in Cuba and offers him the chance to escape. The plan goes dangerously amiss, and Steill is soon on the hunt through Miami’s mean streets for the man who betrayed him. To find him, Steill first has to figure out why he was singled out, an exercise that has him mentally searching his past in Cuba for clues. The fast-paced story, which reveals as much about real life in Cuba as it does about the émigré community in Miami, sees Steill transformed into a man of hair-trigger reactions as he’s forced into playing an increasingly violent game of cat and mouse. In just one of the novel’s many twists, the teacher becomes the fast learner he has to be to navigate this new world of greed, corruption, and crime — but also of compassion so unexpected it is wrenching. From the Trade Paperback edition.
