Outcast by José Latour

Outcast is decent Cuban crime novel that takes place in both Cuba and the US, but predominantly in various parts of Florida. Written by an actual Cuban, the story and suspense were sufficiently interesting but not astounding. The best part of the book for me was learning about the lives lead in Cuba, how refugees integrated into the United States and some comparisons of US capitalism and Cuban communism. The book isn’t a must read, but falls somewhere between adequate and worthwhile overall.*
*lately I haven’t found most fiction that captivating, so perhaps the issue is my current general disinterest in novels (as others thought more of the book).
