Have you read The Feast of San Sebastian By Jonathan Marcantoni? It’s a “raw, gritty and frightening socio-political thriller set in the island paradise of Puerto Rico,” according to reviews that debuted last year:
Two Haitians are smuggled into Puerto Rico with promises of work and a better future, but are instead forced into slave labor at an American factory. Ilan is a middleman on the black market whose guilty conscience has led to alcoholism and gambling debts to the biggest crime boss in Puerto Rico. These three men’s lives will collide when Ilan is forced to pay his debt by arranging for the assassination of the corrupt Superintendent of Police.
What follows is an examination of the decadence and injustice of a colonial society on the brink of self-destruction.
Jonathan Marcantoni is the author of Traveler’s Rest and Communion (with Jean Blasiar), both published by Savant Books and Publications. He has been a freelance writer and editor since 2004. His family is from Utuado and Fajardo, Puerto Rico. He currently lives in San Antonio, TX with his wife and three daughters.

His intention with this book is to educate, and hopefully, to create action in its readers. The problems facing Puerto Rico can be remedied, but only if we work together as a people to make a better future for our families and for our country.
