Miami Days Havana Nights by Linda Bennett Pennell
Historical Fiction , Mystery & Thrillers
Pub Date 18 Jul 2018
To grasp history, we have to understand the common man’s place in it. Miami Days Havana Nights is not a historical mystery in the typical genre sense. It is something quite different, and all the more captivating for it. The story of a young Jewish man unwittingly ensnared in the Miami mob alternates with that of a young University of Florida professor seeking the man’s story. Her intellectual scavenger hunt not only leads her to Tampa and eventually Cuba- it leads her to examine herself and her relationships with others.
Miami Days Havana Nights is a must read for anyone interested in Florida history (particularly UF Gators). Miami Days Havana Nights will appeal to fans of historical novels, as well as those interested in mob history and the Jewish role in Florida.
