A very entertaining novel about Cuba just before Castro's revolution. Wormold, a nobody expatriate, finds himself neck deep in spies and trouble when approached by the British government. A short novel, with plenty of sarcasm and satire, and worth it. A film adaptation was made as well. There's also another novel very close to this titled The Tailor of Panama which makes me a bit suspect. In any case, this one is worth reading. Five stars and recommended.
