4 Seasons in Havana is a mini-series now on Netflix
and is based on the Havana Quartet by Leonardo Padura
Lieutenant Mario Conde is suffering from a terrible New Year's Eve hangover. Though it's the middle of a weekend, he is asked to urgently investigate the mysterious disappearance of Rafael Morin, a high-level business manager in the Cuban nomenklatura. Conde remembered Morin from their student days: good-looking, brilliant, a "reliable comrade'' who always got what he wanted, including Tamara the girl Conde was after.
But Rafael Morin's exemplary rise from a poor barrio and picture perfect life hide more than one suspicious episode worthy of investigation. While pursuing the case in a decaying but adored Havana Conde confronts his lost love for Tamara and the dreams and illusions of his generation.
Leonardo Padura was born in 1955 in Havana and lives in Cuba. He is a novelist, essayist, journalist and scriptwriter. Havana Blue is the third of the Havana Quartet to be published in English. It has been published in Cuba, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Germany and France.
