Fueled by alcohol and legal brilliance, Michael Seeley once oversaw his law firm’s most successful litigation. Until it all fell apart. After two sober years practicing small-town law in upstate New York, Seeley has earned back most of what he lost—but not the gin-sharpened passion.

When Reynoso goes missing, Seeley’s reluctant promise to help draws him progressively deeper into Havana’s violent underbelly and a decades-long conspiracy.
