The Havana Room is the tale of a man who falls from the heights of power and wealth in New York, and finds himself in a dangerous and potentially lethal state of affairs. Bill Wyeth is a successful real estate attorney in his late thirties with a wife and son, who, by the merest chance, loses everything: family, job, status. Unmoored and alone, Wyeth drifts toward the city's darker corners. Restoration seems unlikely, redemption impossible. Wyeth finds himself in an old-time Manhattan steakhouse and is intrigued by the manager, Allison Sparks-sexy, complicated, and independent in all ways.

In this novel, perhaps the author's best, Colin Harrison bridges the gap between the hardcore thriller and the literary novel. No current fiction writer handles suspense, sheer narrative tension, better than Harrison. His "Havana Room" is creepy as worms yet as engaging and ultimately satisfying as one of Paul Auster's better novels, say, "The Book of Illusions."
