A high-powered New York attorney loses his wife, son, and career after a tragic accident occurs at his home. He becomes somewhat of a hermit, his only contact with others comes in the form of meal times taken at a steakhouse. But at the back of this restaurant is a lounge to which people are admitted by the manager's invitation only. Bill becomes involved with the beautiful manager and with the strange events that occur when he is invited into the lounge.

A very interesting book. The story is somewhat strange, especially when you learn what goes on in the exclusive Havana Room, but an entertaining story altogether. Lots of mysterious elements combine for a good read.

This book is a little slow at the beginning but once you get into it, it was really suspenseful.

This book is slow in the beginning, so much so that I said forget it. The sexual content was not necessary on the first pages and it did not make me want to read more, this is a must miss in my book.

The book's premise is a good one; if you enjoyed John Grisham's "The Firm" it's on the same idea. Somehow it didn't meet my expectations. From the first chapter I was thinking to myself the actions of the characters were highly improbable. The narrator was excellent, however and brought the various characters to life. I would probably enjoy listening to him read the dictionary.

I really liked this book! It kept my interest and I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. There was good character development and I cared about each one. It felt very tightly written...there were no loose ends, it didn't leave you wondering about small details. This was my first Colin Harrison book, but it won't be my last!
