Adios Muchachos by Daniel Chevarria
I don't usually pick up a book without a recommendation from either NPR or a friend, but as I was browsing the NPL e-book options, I found the summary of this to be intriguing. Set in Cuba, the story addresses the life of Alicia, an upscale prostitute who is also a con artist. She gets involved with a man who, from a course of unintended events, has to cover up the death of his lover. Part romance, part mystery, but mostly a great read on character and motivation. Some scenes are explicit, so not for the timid.
