War in Cuba isn’t Ben Tyler’s concern. Still, sailing mares and guns into Havana harbor in 1898—right past the submerged wreckage of the US battleship Maine—may not be the smartest thing the recently prison-sprung horse wrangler ever did. Neither is shooting one of the local Guardia, though the pompous peacock deserved it. Now Tyler’s sitting tight in a vermin-infested Cuban stockade waiting to face a firing squad. But he’s not dying until he gets the money he’s owed from a two-timing American sugar baron. And there’s one smart, pistol-hot lady at the rich man’s side who could help Ben get everything he’s got rightfully coming—even when the whole damn island is going straight to hell.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Elmore Leonard’s most exciting book in years.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “There is so much good storytelling in this novel...There are few writers who can match Leonard when it comes to narrative moves, none who write dialogues that say so little and mean so much.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “Explosive...exciting...keeps the reader glued to the pages.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • “A wild ride through Cuba during the Spanish-American War...A good old-fashioned Western served with a sly grin and a side dish of scams.”

    Miami Herald

  • “Not only his finest novel but one that transcends the limits of its genre and is worthy of being evaluated as literary fiction.”

    Houston Chronicle

  • “If you like Leonard, you'll love Cuba Libre, and if—for some reason—you haven’t yet discovered the author, prepare for a real treat.

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This book has something to interest almost everyone. Set against the rich and compelling backdrop of Cuba during its struggle for independence, the story includes bank robbery, cattle rustling, love, suspense, and action-packed adventure. Realistic, memorable characters come to life in the scheming twists and turns of a complex plot...A rare glimpse of the Spanish-American War and the fight for Cuban independence.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Leonard...pulls off a wonderful historical novel, due to be published at the centenary of the onset of the Spanish-American War...Happy to have read such a fine story, one comes away curious to know more about the period and its events. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “Top entertainment from the pro’s pro.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A Publishers Weekly Bestseller
