Praise for The Golden Havana Night

The latest Gus Corral adventure takes the Northside homeboy to Cuba and back to Denver in a story that Kirkus Reviews called "gripping" with a hero who is "hard to resist."

"You can't help but love a book that's subtitled A Sherlock Homie Mystery, which suggests another Gus Corral book may be in the works. That's good news, because The Golden Havana Night cries out for a sequel."
The Denver Post

"Ramos' metaphoric reflections on who and how we see one another, through language, through health communication, through aging, make interesting divagations from the crime and travel literature mission of the novel, but add immeasurably to the storytelling essential of the detective novel. The Golden Havana Night has everything a reader looks for. Except an ending. And that's what, when all gets said and the last page done, makes this Sherlock Homie novel a real kick in the head."
