    Tons of surprises - Highly recommended

    I bought the book because I used to live in Key Largo and was completely engrossed by the end of the second chapter. I really felt like I was back home in The Keys. I like the prologues at the beginning of each chapter that describe his crash and imprisonment. It was like a short story within the story. I LOVE the bar owner character she's hilarious! I'll definately be on the lookout for anything else written by this author.
