The title sins were committed by the generation that made Cuba a pawn in the Cold War. An American academic comes to today's Cuba for research on the missile crisis, in which his father was somehow involved. This leads him into embroilment in an insidious plot of urban terrorism by Cuban reactionaries. Though the pseudonymous author is advertised as "a political figure whose name is known in international capitals and intelligence circles," he has penned a conventional and unconvincing thriller. What elevates the audiobook version is the excellent narration by Julio Perez. A newcomer, Perez sounds as if he's no more than 18 or 19 years old, yet he has considerable talent and technique. We look forward to more from him. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
