We deal with Ojibway, Chinese, Cuban, and Euro-Canadian culture in this police procedural that is partially located in Cuba and part in northern Ontario. I feel MS Blair took on a little too much in this book, too many cultures and too many events. We are involved with an attempted art heist as well as a series of murders of prostitutes in both Cuba and on the highway in Ontario. She handles the switch back and forth between Canada and Cuba well but I just found it a little too complex and there was what seemed to be too much detail in the forensic work.
The details of federal/First Nation relations are handled well and sound right to me, but I don't know how things are in Cuba these days. The mercury problem is as described (but I wish she hadn't mentioned vaccinations).
