Love and murder in Key West. Stories from Alfred Hitchcock's and Ellery Queen's magazines. Tropical storms come and go, but human nature remains deadly all year long. Young Meggie Trevor, cast adrift emotionally--and into jeopardy--by the apparent death of her CIA agent father, takes on all the villains that rowdy Key Wasted has to offer: money-launderers, murderers, double-dealing gamblers and even a literary thief. In six stories, including "Last Island South" (nominated by both the Private Eye Writers of America and the International Thriller Writers as best story), Meggie proves she's every bit her father's daughter in an end-of-the-road city where anything goes.
