My review.


Cuban heel by Leopold Borstinski. Alex Cohen Book 5. Would you work with the devil to build a paradise on Earth? Alex Cohen joins long-time friend and business partner, Meyer Lansky to recreate Las Vegas in 1950s Havana. When dictator President Batista gives them the opportunity to build their dream casino complexes, Alex must choose between dancing with this devil or being in debt to the Italian mob.If he takes the mafia money then he will be tied to the men who planned his earlier downfall and removed his mentor, Lucky Luciano from the syndicate. If he refuses their investment then he will be beholden to the tinpot generalissimo and his bloated ego. But Alex knows that there is more at stake than mere gelt–now he has his family surrounding him and they will die if he makes a bad decision.The fifth book tears at the heart of the Jewish mob's role in pre-revolution Cuba. Leopold Borstinski's piercing crime fiction gives each reader the shocking skinny into the building of modern America. A very good read with good characters. I did like Alex. A different read for me. 4*.


Blurb.
