Cuba Libre

by Elmore Leonard

Audiobook
recommend

War in Cuba isn't Ben Tyler's concern. Still, sailing mares and guns into Havana harbor in 1898—right past the submerged wreckage of the U.S. battleship Maine—may not be the smartest thing the recently prison-sprung horse wrangler ever did. Neither is shooting one of the local Guardia, though the pompous peacock deserved it. Now Tyler's sitting tight in a vermin-infested Cuban stockade waiting to face a firing squad. But he's not dying until he gets the money he's owed from a two-timing American sugar baron. And there's one smart, pistol-hot lady at the rich man's side who could help Ben get everything he's got rightfully coming...even when the whole damn island's going straight to hell.
