- Swing back to 1956, when jazz and rock 'n' roll both ruled the airwaves, giant finned cars ruled the roadways and Tiki Bars were the hottest spots on the nightlife scene. Riggins, a New York City detective, takes a 'forced vacation' to Tiki Island in the world-famous Florida Keys and Key West. Once there he gets mixed up with the seductive daughter of the resort's wealthy owner; gets taken for a wild ride by a beautiful blonde bombshell; and gets himself suspected of a brutal murder.
- Skeletons, mermaids, Mai Tais, Exotica music, fishing and phantoms all come together to make this Key West murder mystery a fun, old-fashioned pulp noir novel that's sure to please anyone who digs the mid-century scene, or just loves plain old fashioned noir-style detective novels. Tiki Chris Pinto's Florida Keys murder mystery will have you spooked and guessing throughout the entire story, with a few twists that will get you saying, "Wow, daddy-o! Dig that crazy scene!"
Note: If this book were rated like a movie, it would be rated NC-17 for vilolence, sex and some language. That's Noir. You've been warned.
