In this heart-pounding, starkly colored, and visually stunning “noir comic not to be missed” (CrimeReads), three women are running out of time to get out of Cuba with six million dollars on the night of New Year’s Eve 1958.
Gangster’s moll Carole, jazz singer Taffy, and mambo queen Ana all have their reasons for needing to escape the El Eden Casino in Havana. And on the tumultuous night of New Year’s Eve, when Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista flees the country and the nation falls to Fidel Castro, they get their chance...with the help of six suitcases filled with stolen dirty money. Of course, it’s one thing to get the cash...and quite another to get off the island alive...
Acclaimed creators Alex de Campi and Victor Santos weave an unforgettable and glittering noir thriller—all wrapped up in the humid, fateful Caribbean night that marked the very end of the great mob casinos. “Readers will revel in this fast-paced noir, embracing both its elegant period detail and pulpy genre roots” (Publishers Weekly).
