The Cuban Affair by Nelson DeMille. According to the map on end papers this involves Southern Florida, Cuba, and the Andros Island. Andros Island? Oh, it's part of the Bahamas.

An Echo of Murder by Anne Perry. "A William Monk novel". Anne Perry's photo is not her posing next to a horse. Didn't earlier photos have her posing by a horse? Or maybe it was a horse barn.
