A California lawyer finds herself on the trail of a murderer while searching for her missing mother in Cuba in the final entry of this mystery series. Attorney Willa Jansson’s mother is a lifelong activist. So it’s no surprise when she and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom disregard federal regulations and head to Cuba for a goodwill tour. The real shock occurs when the group returns . . . with one less member. Worried about her mother facing a lengthy prison sentence or a hefty fine, Willa springs to the rescue, jetting off to Havana, where nothing’s as it seems. There, she befriends two suspiciously helpful reporters and follows leads from fancy hotels to dark, underground tunnels, finding ample danger along the way. Soon, both the American and Cuban governments get involved—as does Willa’s handsome ex, Lt. Don Surgelato of the San Francisco Police Department. But things really heat up when Willa’s efforts get her mixed up in a murder. Now she must track down her mom, get home safely, and stay one step ahead of a killer. Willa’s bailed her mother out before, but never like this . . . “With its page-turning plot, self-realized setting, and terrific characters, one could fairly call this the best Jansson adventure yet—and that’s saying a great deal.” —Booklist “The beauty of Matera’s writing is that the story, fun as it is, doesn’t shortcut a shrewd social commentary on the current state of the Cuban Revolution and U.S. policy toward that country.” —Houston Chronicle

DIVMany bibliographers focus on women who write. Lawyer Barnett looks at women who detect, at women as sleuths and at the evolving roles of women in professions and in society. Excellent for all women's studies programs as well as for the mystery hound. Look at the popularity of such reading guides as Willetta Heising's Detecting Women (3rd ed. 0-9644593-7-X) or Amanda Cross' fiction (Honest Doubt 0-345-44011-0 11/00)./div

'If a man truly desires to write, then he will. Rejection and ridicule will only strengthen him . . . There is no losing in writing, it will make your toes laugh as you sleep, it will make you stride like a tiger, it will fire the eye and put you face to face with death. You will die a fighter, you will be honored in hell. The luck of the word. Go with it, send it.' Charles Bukowski was one of our most iconoclastic, raw and riveting writers, one whose stories, poems and novels have left an enduring mark on our culture. On Writing collects Bukowski's reflections and ruminations on the craft he dedicated his life to. Piercing, unsentimental and often hilarious, On Writing is filled not only with memorable lines but also with the author's trademark toughness, leavened with moments of grace, pathos and intimacy. In the previously unpublished letters to editors, friends and fellow writers collected here, Bukowski is brutally frank about the drudgery of work and uncompromising when it comes to the absurdities of life and of art.
