Brian L. French is a political commentator and consultant and was a columnist with one of Canada’s largest circulation dailies.
He has been travelling to Cuba for over a decade and has made friends with dozens of Cubans: ordinary family members, working people and others; some of who are dangerous.
All the people in “Mojito” are real, but often living in different personas. The political and social situations for Cubans are also real. He describes these in his blog www.mojitonovel.com.
He and his family live in the Toronto Beaches.

Mojito is a terrific espionage book, but what I like best about it is how the author describes Cuba and more particularly Havana and the people that live there.
The lead character, McCaul, is a tough guy with a heart while his love interest, Kate, is an equal to him.
The conflict and tension is realistic and the plot - that a highly skilled team could very likely overthrow the declining Castro regime - rings true.
It's well written and if you like spy / thrillers than this is a good one.
