She goes to Venezuela to interview Cuban volunteers for a psychosocial satisfaction survey in That Time in Caracas. She learns the Metro, travels to several other cities, and meets journalists, film stars and a host of other Venezuelans with whom she solves a mystery or two.

Along the way, she meets a number of Venezuelans from street sellers to government types, business people to film stars, travels to other cities, learns the Metro, and completes the satisfaction survey of Cuban volunteers, and in the end solves a couple of murders.
