BACK TO BLOOD opens aboard a police launch speeding across Miami´s Biscayne Bay. A Cuban seeking asylum is teetering atop a ship´s mast, and it falls to Nestor Camacho, a young Cuban-American cop, to bring him down. His heroic feat gets him ostracized by his own family, and half his neighbors in today´s not-so-Little Havana--Hialeah. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that distinguished Tom Wolfe´s previous bestselling novels, BACK TO BLOOD is a big, panoramic story of an American metropolis--a human comedy involving class, family, wealth, ethnicity, crime, sex, and race.

A fascinating, cinematic, multi-generational history of the Cuban mob in the US from ´´America´s top chronicler of organized crime´´ and New York Times best-selling author of Havana Nocturne. By the mid 1980s, the criminal underworld in the United States had become an ethnic polyglot; one of the most powerful illicit organizations was none other than the Cuban mob. Known on both sides of the law as ´´the Corporation´´, the Cuban mob´s power stemmed from a criminal culture embedded in south Florida´s exile community - those who had been chased from the island by Castro´s revolution and planned to overthrow the Marxist dictator and reclaim their nation. An epic story of gangsters, drugs, violence, sex, and murder rooted in the streets, The Corporation reveals how an entire generation of political exiles, refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hit men, and their wives and girlfriends became caught up in an American saga of desperation and empire building. T. J. English interweaves the voices of insiders speaking openly for the first time with a trove of investigative material he has gathered over many decades to tell the story of this successful criminal enterprise, setting it against the larger backdrop of revolution, exile, and ethnicity that makes it one of the great American gangster stories that has been overlooked - until now. Drawing on the detailed reporting and impressive volume of evidence that drive his best-selling works, English offers a riveting, in-depth look at this powerful and sordid crime organization and its hold in the US. 1.

From Martin Cruz Smith, author of Gorky Park and Havana Bay, comes another audacious novel of exotic locales, intimate intrigues, and the mysteries of the human heart: December 6. Set in the crazed, nationalistic Tokyo of late 1941, December 6 explores the coming world war through the other end of history´s prism - a prism held here by an unforgettable rogue and lover, Harry Niles. In many ways Niles should be as American as apple pie: raised by missionary parents, taught to respect his elders and be an honorable and upright Christian citizen dreaming of the good life on the sun-blessed shores of California. But Niles is also Japanese: reared in the aesthetics of Shinto and educated in the dance halls and backroom poker gatherings of Tokyo´s shady underworld to steal, trick, and run for his life. As a gaijin, a foreigner - especially one with a gift for the artful scam - he draws suspicion and disfavor from Japanese police. This potent mixture of stiff tradition and intrigue - not to mention his brazen love affair with a Japanese mistress who would rather kill Harry than lose him - fills Harry´s final days in Tokyo with suspense and fear. Who is he really working for? Is he a spy? For America? For the emperor? Now, on the eve of Pearl Harbor, Harry himself must decide where his true allegiances lie. Suspenseful, exciting, and replete with the detailed research Martin Cruz Smith brings to all his novels, December 6 is a triumph of imagination, history, and storytelling melded into a magnificent whole. 1.
