Item description for La Neblina del Ayer (Coleccion Andanzas) by Leonardo Padura...

La Habana, verano de 2003. Han trascurrido catorce aos desde que el teniente investigador Mario Conde, desencantado, abandonara la polica. En esos aos han ocurrido muchos cambios en Cuba, y tambin en la vida de Mario Conde. Su inclinacin por la literatura y la necesidad de ganarse la vida lo han llevado a dedicarse a la compra y venta de libros de segunda mano. El hallazgo fortuito de una valiossima biblioteca le coloca al borde de un magnfico negocio, capaz de aliviar sus penurias materiales. Pero, en un libro de esa biblioteca, aparece una hoja de revista en la que una cantante de boleros de los aos cincuenta, Violeta del Ro, anuncia su retiro en la cumbre de su carrera.

Mario Conde, a former police lieutenant initiates an investigation, without imagining that by following the track of Violeta del Rio, an enigmatic singer of boleros, he will awaken a turbulent past that, like the fabulous library, has been blocked off for more than 40 years...

Es la primera novela que leo de Padura, pero buscaré las otras. Su descripción y amor de la Havana y de sus personajes es profunda. El aspecto de misterio en la novela es muy bueno. UN AUTOR QUE MERECE LEERSE.
