This is a Tom Wolfe novel about Miami and about a 2nd generation Cuban police officer & his struggles along with the struggles of Miami in general. He goes after the the money and plastic kind of life in Miami. He goes after each group fighting to keep their power or fight for more against the other groups in town. A good read with good characters, good action and enough humor to keep it light hearted enough as well. Really liked this book.
I am probably going to post it on PBS, I got it from there so I should probably pass it along although I like keeping Wolfe's books too. Don't have to decide right now, I think there are 14 WL for it and with it being a big hardback book, those lines don't move very fast.
