About the Author

Leonardo Padura was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1955. Author of The Man Who Loved Dogs and Heretics, his genre-bending literary crime novels featuring detective Mario Conde have been widely translated and form the basis for Netflix's 2016 miniseries, Four Seasons in Havana.

Reviews

Dressed in the grungy trappings of a crime drama, this literary tour-de-force from Padura offers a colorful cultural history of Cuba and the island's historical contact with Europe that helped to shape its people's religious beliefs . . . The author forges a wondrous connection between the past and present through his characters' faith in the statue's occult powers and through a vivid portrait of a decayed Havana, where vestiges of opulence glimmer in the ravages of time. Padura's novel will appeal equally to genre fans and lovers of literary thrillers.
