Book Description:
Following the success of Outcast by Jose Latour, Akashic presents the second in a line of Cuban noir, straight outta Havana. The first suspense novel in English translation by internationally acclaimed Uruguayan mystery writer Daniel Chavarr a, Adios Muchachos is a dark, erotic, brutally funny romp through the sexual underworld and black market boardrooms of post Cold War Cuba. Seen through Chavarr a s compassionate but uncompromising eyes, present day Havana is a crossroads for petty hustlers looking for an easy mark, two time losers looking for a fresh start, and high rolling international speculators looking to take advantage of them all.

The novel describes the ill fated alliance between Alicia, a stunningly beautiful prostitute who openly displays her voluptuous wares by bicycle on the city streets, and Victor King, a desperately ambitious Canadian businessman with an enormous appetite for kinky sex and buried treasure and a striking resemblance to Mel Gibson.

Following an early erotic entanglement of their own, Victor hires Alicia to lure a series of handsome lovers into the bedroom of his estate for the voyeuristic gratification of his mysterious wife, Elizabeth, who watches the action with her husband through a two way mirror. After a sultry drunken dance results in the accidental death of Victor s wealthy Dutch business partner, Rieks Groote, Victor sees his ambitions for wealth suddenly go up in smoke and Alicia faces the end to her dreams of escaping her dreary, dead end life on the island.

Hustlers all the way, the two quickly decide to turn disaster into opportunity, hiding the body in a freezer and hatching an elaborate kidnapping scheme that will allow them to steal millions of dollars from the Groote family and start a new life together off the island. Through a series of startling plot twists and slapstick misadventures, Victor and Alicia find themselves unwittingly manipulated and ultimately outmaneuvered by a sympathetic fellow hustler. In the end, everything revolves around the secret ingredient to an old family recipe and a long overdue nose job as only one of the novel s characters is able to make off with the loot and bid adios to Cuba and the past.
