Accused crook falls for Tropicana dancer

In case you haven't seen it, Juan Tamayo wrote a fascinating story in the March 15 issue of the Miami Herald. Here's the opening:
He's an eccentric British antiques collector, middle-aged and a bit of a dandy. She's a fetching young dancer from Cuba's famed Tropicana nightclub.
Improbably, they fell in love. Even more improbably, they got themselves entangled in a bit of foreign intrigue involving a purported former Fidel Castro bodyguard and a stolen Shakespeare manuscript, the latter 387 years old and worth millions.
