This tale begins conventionally: the bank cashier in a small Vermont town is found shot outside the empty vault, and a detective and a journalist from NYC team up to unravel the mystery. Inexplicably, the investigation languishes until midway through the book, when every single character we've met ends up in Cuba and embroiled in the Cuban War of Independence. It's almost as though one of the authors wanted to write a mystery, and the other wanted to write about Cuba, so they split the difference. It's an adequate mystery, but the machinations required to get everyone to Cuba are a bit over the top.
