A lovesick expatriate Cuban, an unscrupulous Southern capitalist, and a sanitized Mafia heir scratching a mid-life itch come together in this barbed tale centered around a cache of Cuban cigars secured for JFK just before he tightened the embargo in 1963. Mel McKinney’s Where There’s Smoke is an ironic, provocative, and action-packed ride that hurtles full-force toward a breathless conclusion.
