Circumstance, nonchalance and a remarkable streak of bad luck have turned Ben Tyler from cowboy to bank robber to convict - without once wiping his smile. Tyler's not a loser - he just hasn't been winning lately. That's all set to change when he sets out from Arizona to Cuba, aiming to trade horses as a cover for running guns. But - what about this for timing? - it's 3 days after the sinking of the US battleship Maine in Havana harbour. And just about the moment when sugar-planter's mistress Amelia Brown is getting hungry for a new type of man. Either way, sparks are gonna fly...
Get Shorty...Rum Punch (filmed as Jackie Brown)... and now... Cuba Libre On the page and on the screen, Elmore Leonard is hotter than ever!
