Love, lust and loss, sex and skullduggery, conquests, failures, foibles – these are the elements of calypso, the stories in song that personify the islands of the West Indies. The three stories in this volume deal with lust in the Caribbean -- lust for another man's wife, lust for another man's yacht, and parrot lust.

Man Smart -- Captain Petrullo is the proud, if not arrogant, commander of a 500-man army unit stationed in Passion Point. Each day he struts up Ponce de Leon Boulevard across Saltwhistle Street and back down Citadel Road. He nods with a certain aloofness to those who watch him in awe as he does his turn around the town at a pace that just hints at military precision. But when Captain Petrullo first sees Mireille, his military veneer goes AWOL, and he trembles as if he were the lowliest recruit in his own 500-man army unit. His passion decrees that he must have this beauty, even though she is the faithful wife of the mayor of Passion Point. Opportunity knock.

Matilda -- Stealing a yacht is easy. That’s what Humberto and Odus thought, but they didn’t count on Matilda.
Yellow Bird -- Antoine’s bird is a sassy, egotistical fellow, much like Antoine himself. Turns out the bird has good reason for his attitude.

I started reading this novel on November 11 2011. I liked the cover. Absinth is a green liquor which is flavored with wormwood. That is a weird drink. This was an okay book. But once again what do you expect for a free book these days . ShelleyMA
