The Havana Room

A Novel

Colin Harrison

Picador

Bill Wyeth is a rising real estate attorney living the lofty heights of success. Then a tragic accident claims everything he has: his family, his fortune, his career. But this is Manhattan, and Bill has much further to fall. His downward spiral lands him at the table of Allison Sparks, the dangerously alluring owner of a midtown steakhouse. She needs a personal favor of him--to engineer a midnight trade-off in a shady multimillion-dollar real estate deal. For a man with nothing left to lose, the set-up is too lucrative to refuse, and like Allison, too forbidden to resist. But her favor draws him deeper into a web of sex, deception, and murder--and to a secret place at the back of her restaurant, the Havana Room, where a man might find both evil and redemption. The Havana Room is a great New York thriller from a modern master of the genre.

Praise for The Havana Room

"You don't read Colin Harrison; you devour him, and that sends you back to discover his four earlier New York novels filtered through a film-noir lens. . . . It's hard to imagine there will be any more books offering more sheer fun than The Havana Room."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
"To read [Harrison] . . . is to plunge happily into a world of dead-on dialogue, fully realized characters, and rare insight into how money and power distort American life."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
