Set in the Summer of 2022, this book in the CJ-verse takes us on a trip to Cuba.  The descriptions of the places and the people are up to Carlos' usual high standard and in a tightly written narrative he takes us along, meeting some interesting and powerful people, as well as a snarky one in Jay who is an ugly American in the touristy sense as well as in reality.

If you haven't already dipped into CJ's exploits, I heartily recommend you do so.  You will not be disappointed!

Seeing and experiencing a visit to a Cuba that can only exist in the CJ-verse is a wonderful journey.  CJ and Oz let us vicariously see a wonderful visit where they get to meet wonderful people, eat great food, and discover a find that will help propel Cuba into a brighter future.  As part of the CJ series of the summer of 2022, this both fills in some blanks and sets up the promise of more to come. 

As usual, a wonderfully crafted story by an amazing writer, Carlos Hazday.

As always with is writing in the CJVerse, or anything else he writes for that matter, Carlos gives us an exciting adventure as CJ and Owen travel to Cuba. Our favorite, young, Cuban-American character continues his collection of interesting people as he takes in the country of his grandparents.

Another fantastic entry in the life of CJ and Owen. We're currently dealing with the events of Summer 2022.

In this chapter of there lives, we find CJ and Owen off to Cuba.

We are treated to a wonderful tour of Cuba, fantastic diving and some amazing food.

Of course with all CJ stories, things are not that simple. We are introduced to secret agents, politicians and secret information.

A fantastic addition to the life of CJ, Owen and family. It comes highly recommended as do the other 23 entries.
