Cuba, 1902. Freed from its Spanish masters by US forces four years ago, the island is still occupied by its erstwhile liberators, some of whom aren’t all that eager to leave. American businessmen and politicians would like to see Cuba become a full state, while the Cuban people dream only of freedom. When people begin dying... and then come back to life, the SPOOKS are sent to investigate the possible involvement of a Cuban priest and rebel leader—a santero.
The Spooks seem to be at each others throats at times and all I can really tell you without spoiling a GREAT read is that a Spook dies. Then get to that last page!! When I saw it I said rather loudly --well, a very naughty word. THANKFULLY there will be a second part to this story...but I still have to wait.
Rossi's artwork and colouring is tremendous and gives the pages great atmosphere. Dorison and Nury's story...enough twists and turns and characterisation to make any comicker happy!
This series gets better with each book!
