In this acclaimed mystery series, author Tom Corcoran takes readers to the sizzling, spicy, sometimes seedy Key West, plunging them into a dangerous mystery featuring freelance crime-scene photographer Alex Rutledge. When Alex's Navy pal, banker Zack Cahill, disappears from famous Hemingway haunt Sloppy Joe's, Rutledge isn't alarmed. But a daylight murder on the tourist Conch Train and a drive-by shooting shatter Key West's August calm for good. Rutledge's smarts tell him his friend is involved, especially when Zack's ex-mistress shows up with a spiny tale of laundered money, shady investments, and a pay-off worth killing for. Risking the wrath of KWPD's Fred "Chicken Neck" Liska and his own skin as well, Rutledge cruises the town's sultry underbelly and the back streets of New Orleans to find his buddy--and unravel a conspiracy as searing as the midday Florida sun...
This is #2 in An Alex Rutledge Mystery.
