In 1939, the S.S. Saint Louis spent several days anchored at Havana while waiting for the Cuban authorities to allow 900 Jewish refugees from Germany into their country. Confident that a painting by Rembrandt that had belonged to their family since the 17th century--and which they had smuggled on board the ship--would convince the Cubans to let them in, little Daniel Kaminsky and his uncle waited at the dock for their relatives to disembark. But the plan failed and the ship returned to Germany; the Jews were sent back to certain death in Europe, and the painting disappeared. When the painting resurfaces at a London auction in 2007, Daniel's son Elías travels from the United States to Havana, enlisting the help of detective Mario Conde to find out what happened to this artwork and to his family

La cola de la serpiente by Leonardo Padura( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Unas cuantas calles casi en ruinas, asediadas por los escombros y los delincuentes, es lo que queda del viejo Barrio Chino de La Habana. Cuando se adentra en él un Conde ya ex policía, dedicado ahora a la compraventa de libros de segunda mano, no puede evitar recordar que estuvo en ese rincón exótico y agreste de la ciudad muchos años antes, en 1989. Todo surgió de la petición de la teniente Patricia Chion, mujer irresistible, para que le ayudara en un extraño caso: el asesinato de Pedro Cuang, un anciano solitario que apareció ahorcado y al que le habían amputado un dedo y grabado con una navaja en el pecho un círculo y dos flechas. Eran rituales de santería que obligaron a hacer pesquisas por otros ámbitos de la ciudad. Pero el Conde descubrió hilos inesperados, negocios secretos y una historia de abnegación y desgracias que le devolvió la realidad oculta de muchas familias emigrantes asiáticas. Como dice una expresión china, tuvo que encontrar la cola de la serpiente para llegar a su cabeza."-- Back cover

4 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first of the Havana quartet featuring Lieutenant Mario Conde, a tropical Marlowe. A body is found in a Havana park. A young transvestite dressed in a beautiful red evening dress, strangled. The victim had fled his family, finding refuge with Marqués, an author living alone surrounded only by books, his house in ruins. In the baking heat of the Havana summer Conde investigates, moving through a Cuban reality where nothing is what is seems. Padura's masterful prose and eye for detail evoke the Havana that millions of tourists have come to know: crumbling architecture, peeling paintwork and a pulsating, searing sensuality beneath the tropical sun"--Cover page 4
