              The S.S. Saint Louis spent several days anchored at Havana in 1939 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 th...ey had smuggled into the ship -- would convince the Cubans to let them in, little Daniel Kaminsky and his uncle waited at the dock for their relatives to land. However their plan failed and the ship returned to Germany, taking away with her any chance of encounter. In 2007, with the crying of the painting in London, Daniel's son, Elias, travels from the US to Havana in order to find out what happened to this artwork and to his family. Detective Mario Conde is the only one who can help him.

              Padura's Heretics spans and defies literary categories . . . Ingenious. --Maureen Corrigan, Fresh AirA sweeping novel of art theft, anti-Semitism, contemporary Cuba, and crime from a renowned Cuban author, Heretics is Leonardo Padura's greatest detective work yet.In 1939, the Sai...nt Louis sails from Hamburg into Havana's port with hundreds of Jewish refugees seeking asylum from the Nazi regime. From the docks, nine-year-old Daniel Kaminsky watches as the passengers, including his mother, father, and sister, become embroiled in a fiasco of Cuban corruption. But the Kaminskys have a treasure that they hope will save them: a small Rembrandt portrait of Christ. Yet six days later the vessel is forced to leave the harbor with the family, bound for the horrors of Europe. The Kaminskys, along with their priceless heirloom, disappear. Nearly seven decades later, the Rembrandt reappears in an auction house in London, prompting Daniel's son to travel to Cuba to track down the story of his family's lost masterpiece. He hires the down-on-his-luck private detective Mario Conde, and together they navigate a web of deception and violence in the morally complex city of Havana. In Heretics, Leonardo Padura takes us from the tenements and beaches of Cuba to Rembrandt's gloomy studio in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, telling the story of people forced to choose between the tenets of their faith and the realities of the world, between their personal desires and the demands of their times. A grand detective story and a moving historical drama, Padura's novel is as compelling, mysterious, and enduring as the painting at its center.
