This is not your usual "lawyer novel" but a gripping and educational story set in Cuba about the original music of the Buena Vista composers. Though fiction it seems to rely on "non-fiction" sources, so is something of a historical fiction based on a likely scenario regarding Castro governance and its effects on "el cutura", with a lone gun lawyer to enhance the fiction. In all a rather fascinating book.
