Key West seduces people--then asks them to leave in the morning. Take Aaron Katz. He chucked his NY nine-to-five to restore the Mangrove Arms, a rotting wreck of a guest house. Suki Sperakis, aspiring journalist, sees opportunity in Florida, too, though in the meantime she's peddling ad space for a third-rate freebie paper. Then she stumbles upon a nefarious plot

To read the reviews by the 'pros' here one would think that Shames had fallen into a trap that 'series' authors encounter often - they grow too fond of their principal characters. The only recurring character here, the likable 'Bert the Shirt', plays a supporting role and is shown to be all too human. Here Shames abandons some of the more humurous aspects of prior novels to concentrate on character development and scene-setting. The plot moves briskly and seamlessly. The Russian 'mobsters' are less menacing than their Mafia counterparts in prior novels but there are still plenty of moments of suspense. If you have read the entire series, this may well turn out to be one of your favorites. A little less like Hiaasen, a little more like James W. Hall, than his prior Key West tomes, but this is not a negative, just a change. The wit is still there, and this book is a good read.
