Havana Nocturne.

I'm about a hundred pages in and I'm really digging it. He's not the best narrative writer. I read his Paddy Whacked too, and felt that was a bit dry in spots too. But it's loaded with info. The guy really does his research.
And this hits on a bunch of topics that interest me. Cuba. That era of the mafia. The political connections. That era of casino houses. It so far gives you a pretty nice short history on a number of topics.

And oddly, this is a topic that I have a cursory knowledge of, but I'm still pretty well gripped by it. It's pretty much the true story or The Godfather II. And if you watched Boardwalk Empire, this gives you something of an accurate historical bridge connecting true story inspiration of that to the inspired by true events parts of The Godfather II.

Creative and interesting book that contains the little bits of wisdom I always enjoy from Lewis. He's got a gift for communicating his observations simply and honestly to make them feel obvious and unbelievable that they weren't already common though in your mind.
