A different location from her usual books, but still a great mystery!

Max Pauling, ex-CIA, ex-State Department, has taken early retirement to become a flight instructor in New Mexico. A collegue, also "retired," shows up, offering a contract to fly medical supplies into Havana. This revs up Pauling's engines in several senses. Despite the misgivings of Jessica, his live-in lover, he takes the deal. After flying a roundabout route that takes him through Mexico, Miami, and Cloumbia, he lands in Havana, waiting for a contact who will "help him with his spanish." The first sight of her is both breathtaking-she is a beauty-and frustrating:she wants to move at her own pace. Max is a man of action, and waiting for the action to begin does nothing for his mood or blood pressure. The covert reason for their collaboration is to uncover the truth about an intense competition between rival U.S. pharmaceutical companies for access to Cuba's surprisingly high-quality anti-cancer research. Meanwhile a former U.S. Senator is leading a mission to Cuba to discuss the possibility of lessening tensions between the two countries, looking to ease America's controversial commercial embargo. And perhaps he has another mission as well...

Another is her series of political/murder mystery thrillers. Better than several of her most recent ones, but not as interesting to me as her early work.

One of Truman's better efforts. Numerous characters make keeping them separated a little difficult at times, but the storyline kept my interest til the end.
